Major Steve Smedley, a Fellow of the Institute, will be appearing alongside Group Captain Andy Green to discuss the impact of frontline medicine on civilian medicine at this year's Cheltenham Science Festival.
Major Smedley will discuss how treating injured soldiers on the frontline in Iraq and Afghanistan has on made an impact on his work as a biomedical scientist back in the UK. Major Smedley explains "By treating these severe, complex modern battlefield injuries we have been able to gain a better understanding of trauma injuries and whilst delivering military medicine is very demanding, the advances we have been able to make during the last five years have been extraordinary and should benefit all patients. The key to success is the knowledge and skills of frontline clinical and laboratory staff who deliver 'good blood in bad places'.
Frontline Medicine will be held at the Cheltenham Science Festival at 7pm on Thursday 14 June. To find out more please visit http://www.cheltenhamfestivals.com/science/
