GEMS Journal Club 3-Epidemiology with Dr Michelle Gillies

GEMS presents its next Journal Club session, Epidemiology on Wednesday  7th December, 6.30-8pm, Seminar Room 2, Wolfson Medical School.

Dr Michelle Gillies will be discussing the following paper with us:
Leon DA. McCambridge J. Liver cirrhosis mortality rates in Britain from 1950 to 2002: an analysis of routine data. Lancet 2006; 367:52-56. Paper available here

Dr Gillies is an expert in the area of epidemiology and she will talk to us about the unique aspects of research in this area, which is often unfamiliar to undergraduates.  This month’s journal club is exclusively for undergraduates so a relaxed, friendly environment in which to practise your skills of critical appraisal 🙂  Please note that hard copies of the paper will not be available on the night; please print it off in advance.  Hope to see you on Wed!

This will be our last GEMS session of the year, so from all of us at GEMS we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Hope you all have a good break and we will see you all next term!
