Inaugural Professorial Lecture - Professor John Pickering

On becoming a Scrymaster: Shiny objects, multiple organs, bits of blood and the art of telling fortunes in medicine

Join Professor John Pickering as he aims to use a selection of his research experience in plastic surgery, nephrology, cardiology and emergency care to illustrate how different ways of modelling reality (science) can provide insights to change the practice of medicine. He will talk of the importance of uncertainty, and will try and give a brief glimpse of where he thinks the future lies in a learning health care system, big data, machine learning, and precision risk assessments.
