Conversations on race in science and medicine: what can we learn from history today?


October 15th, 2020

The School of Life Sciences is celebrating Black History Month with an event that explores race in science and medicine from a historical perspective.

Friday 23 October, from 5.30pm-6.45pm.
Join the event on Microsoft Teams.

Leading researchers have been invited to discuss their work on how ideas on racial difference came into being and how these ideas continue to influence racial inequalities in health and healthcare today.

The event is open to everyone and is being run as part of the School of Life Science’s Excel in Science programme. The programme aims to support our students and to tackle the fact that BAME students and those from disadvantaged backgrounds are under-represented in funded postgraduate research and hence remain under-represented in academia as a whole.

Speakers:
Chair: Dr Maria Arruda, Chair of BME network, University of Nottingham
Professor Cecile Wright, University of Nottingham
Professor Rana Asali Hogarth, University of IllinoisBME
Professor Vanessa Northington Gamble, George Washington University
