Government and industry: from Covid to climate

24 November 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

UK Government Chief Scientific Adviser Sir Patrick Vallance is the latest recipient of the SCI (Society of Chemical Industry) Lister Medal. The Medal is awarded to prominent leaders working on important advancements for society in the medicinal field.

In a collaboration between SCI and the Royal Society of Edinburgh, Sir Patrick is being honoured for his leadership on the Covid-19 vaccine rollout during the pandemic. He will deliver the 17th Lister Memorial Lecture, entitled ‘Government and industry: from Covid to climate’.

The Medal is named after Sir Joseph Lister, the British surgeon who first introduced antisepsis into hospital routine and pioneered the field of bacteriology in the late 19th Century. It was first awarded in 1944 to Sir Alexander Fleming, whose discovery of penicillin led to the development of antibiotics, and was most recently awarded to Dame Sally Davies in 2016 for her work on addressing antimicrobial challenges.
