Christ's College Webinar Series - CCMAA Part III 25 November 2021

Thursday, November 25, 2021 17:00 - 18:30

As part of our regular College Webinar Series, the Christ’s College Medical Alumni Association (CCMAA), along with the Christ’s College Medical Association and the Development Office are very happy to invite all alumni to the first webinar of the 2021-2022 academic year. The event will take place Thursday 25 November 2021 from 17:00 to 18:30 GMT. The webinar will be hosted by Dr Tony Jewell, President CCMAA.

This is the third webinar in our series discussing Christ’s College and COVID, undertaken as part of this programme. The first two were held just before and after Easter 2021 and covered how the College, University and local NHS managed the pandemic, the development of the novel vaccines, the epidemiology of the pandemic and advising government via SAGE. Both webinars had about 100 Alumni and current students attending and were very well received.

There remain some topics that we have not yet discussed. This third webinar will seek to cover some of the more common questions. Our panel and their titles includes:

• Prof Julian Tang (m 1986), Professor of Respiratory Sciences at University of Leicester; To Mask or not to Mask – that is the question.
• Dr Lucy Jessop (m 1995), Director of Public Health at the National Immunisation Office ROI; Reflections on the successful rollout of the national immunisation programme in Ireland.
• Prof Paul Moss (m 1980), Deputy Head of the College of Medical and Dental Sciences and Professor of Haematology at the University of Birmingham; The immune response to SARS-CoV-2-lessons from the UK Immunology Consortium.
• Prof Theresa Marteau DBE FMedSci (Bye-Fellow), Director Behaviour and Health Research Unit University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine, Science in the time of COVID: Reflections on the event’s research programme.

There will be time for questions following the talks.
