What determines your choices and changes of tack? How do you overcome challenges and disappointments? What is success?

These are some of the questions you can pose to Professor Jane Saffell and Professor Jon Friedland over a cup of tea.  Find out more about the ways in which their career pathways unfolded as a distinguished clinical academic and an educational visionary. How did they move from student to professor of medicine, neurobiology and education?  What do their paths share and where do they diverge? What can you learn from these back stories you don’t normally hear?

This is a unique opportunity to meet two Deputy Principals who have made a significant contribution to their fields – the Deputy Principal (Education) and Deputy Principal (Research and Enterprise). Come and join students at the event, hear the speakers inspiring stories, ask questions and converse in a homely atmosphere with tea and cake. 

Please RSVP to for catering purposes.

This event is part of the Open spaces programme which aims to broaden students’ horizons by bringing medicine, science and healthcare into dialogue with the humanities, arts and enterprise. Look out for future events!
