New ESMI Guest Lecture series launches

ESMI have launched a series of guest external lectures from world-leading academics and up-and-coming talent in the world of evidence synthesis and modelling for applied health research. The lectures aim to share learning and foster debate about new ideas and methods developments in evidence synthesis and modelling, and build collaborative connections to leading researchers and research groups in the UK and internationally.

On 27th November 2017, the inaugural lecture in the series was given by Dr Dylan Kneale from the Institute of Education, UCL talking about ‘Enhancing the portability of public health intervention review evidence for localised decision making’.

Dylan’s talk focussed on the generalisability of meta-analytic evidence and the types of knowledge claims that can be made from meta-analyses of public health interventions. Reflections of the seminar from Dylan himself can be found on the ESMI evidence synthesis team blog.

The series continues in 2018 with GJ Melendez-Torres from Cardiff University on Wednesday 24th January. GJ will be talking about accounting for diversity within syntheses of interventions in his talk: We can see the forest, but where are the trees? Methods to bridge diversity and meta-analysis’. All are welcome. The seminar will be held in the WK Norman Seminar Room in the Medical School Building, St.Luke’s campus at 10am.
