Join us for a discussion about the impact of misinformation and uncertainty during the COVID-19 pandemic on individuals and populations with a panel of experts:

The aim will be to determine how to do better in the future. For example, how should the desire to act rapidly in a pandemic be balanced against the need for reliable evidence, how can scientific journals determine what research is fit to publish, and how can misinformation be identified in a world of artificial intelligence?

Doors open at 5pm. The event will start at 5:30pm with short introductory remarks from each member of the panel, followed by a discussion between them before opening it up to members of the audience.

The event will be chaired by Professor Sir Rory Collins and Professor Patricia Kingori.

All guests are required to register and bring photo ID (University and NHS IDs are acceptable) to enter. Please note that food and drink will not be allowed inside the venue.
