Introducing our Philanthropic Lectures

The College of Medicine & Health, in conjunction with Alumni & Development, is pleased to announce that we will host CoMH Philanthropic Lectures during 2024.

The College is very grateful for the support our academics and researchers receive through corporate philanthropy, bringing together academic and clinical researchers, to better address knowledge gaps and impact the lives of patients.

How to Attend

Our Philanthropic Lectures will be hosted in person and will also be accessible online.

The usual format is a brief introduction from Professor Helen Whelton, Head of CoMH, and the Dean of the relevant School, followed by a one-hour lecture from the newly appointed Professor.

Lecture dates will be added to the Schedule above once confirmed.
