Bring your lunch with you and enjoy some stimulating conversation on responsible research and innovation! Our guest speaker is Dr Stuart Hogarth, Lecturer in Sociology of Science and Technology at the University of Cambridge’s Department of Sociology. 

His research focuses on the political economy of biomedical innovation, and he has published extensively on topics such as regulation and intellectual property. His primary interest is the impact of genomic science on the diagnostics sector, and he is currently writing a history of the development and adoption of DNA tests for HPV in cervical cancer screening. He is extending this work with a new project focused on the development of new screening tools for colorectal, lung and prostate cancer. His work combines empirical research with normative analysis of public policy and commercial strategy, and he has produced policy reports for the European Commission, Health Canada, and the UK Human Genetics Commission. He is preparing a report for the UK National Screening Committee on the controversy surrounding breast screening.
