Usher Institute

Annual Lecture Success

Victor Dzau, President of the National Academy of Medicine in the US, delivered an excellent lecture on Monday 25 November 2019.


The afternoon began with a showcase of work in medical informatics from across the Usher Institute. A poster display complemented a series of short presentations - snapshots across the breadth of work in health data science in the Usher Institute, ranging from innovative self-management apps to training the future generation of digital leaders in the NHS.

A lively and thought-provoking panel discussion followed, chaired by the Head of the Centre for Medical Informatics, Professor Ewen Harrison.
