The IFST Lecture is always one of the highlights of our calendar. This year we are delighted that our guest speaker will be Dr Michael Mosley, well-known British television journalist, producer and presenter, who will talk about the role of the media in presenting evidence-based science to the general public.

Michael studied PPE at Oxford and then became an investment banker...before realising that this really wasn’t the industry for he retrained as a doctor.

After studying medicine at the Royal Free Hospital in London and qualifying as a doctor...he realised that this wasn’t really the industry for him either!

Michael joined the BBC as a trainee assistant producer and over the ensuing 25 years has made numerous science and history documentaries for the BBC, first behind the camera and more recently as a presenter. He’s won numerous awards, including being named Medical Journalist of the Year by the British Medical Association in 1995.

He writes for the Mail on Sunday, The Times and The Independent. He is also a regular columnist for Focus magazine and Eureka.

The IFST Lecture 2018 will take place on 27 June in London. It will also be live streamed to various satellite receptions around the UK. Please note that it is an invitation only event.
