Café Scientifique

Café Scientifique Manchester

Cafe Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. Meetings take place in cafes, bars, restaurants and even theatres, but always outside a traditional academic context.

Cafe Scientifique is a forum for debating science issues, not a shop window for science. We are committed to promoting public engagement with science and to making science accountable.

When: Monthly. From 2018, the dates will vary each month due to space restriction.

Where: The MadLabMadLab at PLANT NOMA, Redfern, Dantzic Street, NOMA, Manchester M60 0AE 


Date 28 June 2018
Title Cafe Sci: "Data saves lifes" - What do YOU think?
Speaker Dr Mary Tully

Our next Café Scientifique will be held on Thursday 28th of June (19.30) at PLANTA NOMA, Dantzic Street, Manchester M60 0AE.

Our Speaker Dr Mary Tully has been part of University of Manchester since 1997 and currently is Director of Public Engagement for Connected Health Cities and Reader in Manchester Pharmacy School. Mary’s research focusses on the process and outcomes of prescribing in secondary care, and public engagement/involvement in the use/linkage of health data for research.

Every time you come in contact with a doctor, it is likely that some data will have been collected about your health. Grouped together, such data can be an invaluable resource to enable new research to be conducted or to evaluate whether new health services have had an impact. Indeed, it has been suggested that data is more valuable than oil! Everyone has an opinion as to whether data should be used for such research. But how do we know what people think about this topic?

In her talk “Data saves lives” – what do YOU think? Dr Mary Tully, will present the work that she and her colleagues have been doing to investigate the detailed views of the public on the use of health data. Do YOU think the same as everyone else? Come along and find out!
