From his perspective as Director of one of the world’s most influential medical research charities, Jeremy will talk about what we need to learn from the current pandemic and the priorities he sees for a post-pandemic society.

Jeremy’s whole career has been dedicated to protecting and improving global health. As a researcher he specialised in infectious diseases, and he has published more than 600 papers.

As part of the response to the Covid-19 pandemic, he was a member of the UK government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE), and the UK Vaccine Taskforce.  As well as sharing his expertise, Jeremy champions rapid investment in research on Covid-19 testing, treatments and vaccines, and argues that everyone – not only people who live in rich countries – should benefit equally from the discoveries that result.

Jeremy’s talk will be relevant for H and AH Biology, Human Biology, Modern Studies and Geography.
