The School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR) has just announced the details of their second Pemberton Lecture and this year they welcome guest lecturer Sir Iain Chalmers, Coordinator of The James Lind Initiative.
“In an analysis published in the Lancet in 2009, Chalmers and Glasziou estimated that there is avoidable waste of 85% of the 100 billion US dollars invested every year in medical research. A follow-up series of papers looking into this problem in preclinical, clinical, and epidemiological research is currently being prepared. Iain Chalmers will present some preliminary findings from this work.” (ScHARR)
The Pemberton lecture will take place on Monday, 10th September 2012 at 5pm - Students Union Auditorium, University of Sheffield. All staff and students are welcome to attend and there will also be a wine reception afterwards
