Science in the Cafe
Norwich Cathedral's latest Science in the Café event is entitled 'Trust in Medicine?’ and will take place in the Nave on Monday 14 June at 7pm.

You are warmly invited to the third talk in the Science in the Café series which will reflect on the necessity for trust to underpin all the functions in a community. We will examine issues which have emerged during the COVID pandemic, where adherence to our moral obligations (the topic of our first session held virtually last year) were central in the way we coped.

About 100 years ago we entered the antibiotic era in medicine which revolutionised care; we are now entering another era in which the development of genomics will introduce changes in care which promise to be just as powerful. In this session we will discuss how trust in the system, its practitioners and each other is essential to ensure that all of us benefit from these advances in medicine.

The Panel of Speakers:

Prof. Mark Wilkinson
, from Norwich Medical School and the coordinator of the Science in the Café series.

Prof. Louise Jones, 
Professor of Breast Pathology at St Bart’s and Norwich Medical School, Lead for Molecular Pathology for Genomics England, Lead for National Breast Tissue Bank, and Director Norwich Biorepository at Norwich Research Park

The Revd Canon Peter Doll, Canon Librarian at Norwich Cathedral

The session will be introduced with a short talk from each speaker, followed by a brief discussion amongst the members of the panel. There will then be a break for refreshments during which members of the audience can discuss what they have heard with one another, before putting questions to the panel. The evening will conclude by 9pm.

Booking in advance is essential.
