Following in the prestigious and popular footsteps of Congress guests that have included Susan Greenfield, Simon King and Monty Halls, is doctor, scientist, politician and television presenter Lord Robert Winston.
He has been described as a “latter-day renaissance man” and is widely regarded as the UK’s pre-eminent expert in reproductive medicine. Lord Robert Winston is professor of science and society and emeritus professor of fertility studies at Imperial College – and this year’s invited guest speaker for the BSAVA 2012 Lecture.
A seasoned and popular television presenter, Lord Winston wrote and presented Superhuman, The Secret Life of Twins, Child of Our Time and the BAFTA Award winning The Human Body. He also presented five series of Your Life in Their Hands for the BBC.
The professor is much in demand as a conference speaker, and Lord Winston is known to enthusiastically explain how the human mind is expanding exponentially and advocates greater trust in scientists, in everything from food scares to climate prediction.
Lord Winston promises to be a thought provoking and thoroughly engaging speaker for the BSAVA Congress Lecture, which takes place on the Thursday of congress and is free for delegates to attend (tickets available on request).
Those attending can look forward to hearing him convey his enthusiasm for science with a terrific sense of humour.
