Professor Sir Peter Morris, former President of Royal College of Surgeons of England and Nuffield Professor of Surgery Emeritus will be coming to Warwick Medical School to present a seminar, 'Life On A Knife's Edge'.
Date: Tuesday 3rd May
Venue: Medical Teaching Centre, University of Warwick, Gibbet Hill
Time: 6pm, followed by Wine Reception at 7pm.
Sir Peter pioneered renal transplant surgery in the UK, and is responsible for the way such operations are now performed nationwide, giving hundreds of patients a new lease to life each year.
It is not everyday that we can get a highly recognised man as Sir Peter to come and give a talk at our University, and as such, the organisers, Warwick Medical Society and Warwick Medical School invite all staff, students, surgeons and clinicians to share Sir Peter's remarkable story. It will be some sort of life story, and not academic, so the invite is open to staff and students of non-(Bio)medical departments who would also be interested, for whatever reason – perhaps close family or friend who have had a kidney transplant for instance.
So that we may plan for numbers, I would be grateful if you could e-mail J.K.K.Patel@warwick.ac.uk. You can also e-mail me at that address if you have any questions, or Medical School Staff and Students can go to the Medical School website and follow the link for MedSoc Distinguished Speakers Programme.
