Great Minds Series: Talk in London on Migrants and Medicine

In their new Great Minds series, the Migration Museum Project and CARA will be exploring some of the hugely significant contributions which people from migrant backgrounds have made to the intellectual life of the UK.

You are invited to join them as they launch the series with an evening of talks on the theme of Medicine, discussing the Paralympics, Psychology and Pharmaceuticals.

This event will be chaired by Ian Blatchford, Director of the Science Museum.

The following will address the event: Eva Loeffler OBE – The Paralympics; Professor Dinesh Bhugra CBE – The Psychology of Migration; and Ross MacFarlane, The Wellcome Collection – Pharmaceuticals.

Ms. Loeffler, the daughter of Sir Ludwig Guttmann, will be discussing her father’s work and legacy as founder of the Paralympics.

The brilliant Professor Bhugra will present some of his own research into migration and mental health.

Mr. MacFarlane will explore the work of Henry Wellcome’s pharmaceutical research laboratories, and his work in the field of tropical medicine.

There will be complimentary refreshments following the talks.
