ESMI Guest Lecture Series

By November 14, 2017January 26th, 2021Member News & Updates, STEMM

ESMI – Evidence Synthesis & Modelling for Health Improvement – is a vibrant and multidisciplinary research group which specialises in the synthesis of research evidence for health policy and practice.


From late 2017 the ESMI research group is hosting a Guest Lecture Series, that aims to:

  • Showcase and foster debate about new ideas and developments in evidence synthesis and modelling methods
  • Build collaborative connections to other leading researchers and relevant research groups in the UK and internationally
  • Raise the profile of ESMI’s work – and of evidence synthesis methods and their application more generally – within the medical school, the wider University and the South West
  • Stimulate ideas for the development of collaborative grant applications from ESMI staff, to conduct our own methodological and applied evidence synthesis or modelling research projects, and encourage research collaboration between research teams within ESMI

We hope to host between 3 and 4 guest lectures a year, and will publicise them as widely as possible within the Medical School, PenCLAHRC and the NHS, public health and care organisations in the South West.
