This year our annual Goodall Symposium will be celebrating Joseph Lister and his outstanding contribution to antiseptic surgery.
2017 marks 150 years since Joseph Lister published his article "Antiseptic Principle of the Practice of Surgery" in the medical journal, The Lancet. This ground-breaking article helped to make surgery safer and it continues to influence modern day practice and inspire today’s medical practitioners.
Our evening will begin with light refreshments and the chance to see our Lister exhibition before we take a look at Lister's article and discuss how Glasgow played a key role in Lister's theories on asepsis. We'll then hear about Lister's legacy to research and innovation, his educational legacy and his welfare for the sick. We’ll also hear how Lister's theories inform research into 3d printing, robotics and perfusion machines.
6:30pm – Light refreshments and exhibition
7:00pm – Mr David Hamilton discusses surgery before Lister and the part Glasgow played in his work in to asepsis.
7:30pm - Mr Pankaj Chandak will deliver the Goodall Memorial Lecture: From Bench to Bedside - the important legacy of Lord Lister in modern day translation
