We are delighted to announce that the next session of the Work in Progress Seminar Series (WiPs) will take place on Wednesday the 16th of March at 3:30 PM in Room 3.1.1, East Wing Strand Campus.


Prof Barbara Prainsack

Professor Barbara Prainsack will present a book chapter titled “Beyond empowerment“. The chapter will form part of a book with the working title “Personalization from Below: Participatory Medicine in the 21st Century” (under contract with New York University Press). If you would like to attend email the convenor of the WiP series Giulia Cavaliere ( to request the full chapter.


The Work In Progress seminars are part of the BIOS+ Research Group at SSHM events and offer the opportunity to the members of the Department to discuss drafts of their work-in-progress and receive helpful feedback from colleagues before submission or before a presentation. The aim is to bring together the researchers in the Department (but not only!), and provide a locus for sharing expertise and knowledge in an informal setting. Junior researchers, including PhD students and post-docs, are especially encouraged to present and attend.

Contact the convenor of the WiP series Giulia Cavaliere ( if you are keen to present in 2016.
