Time: 12:30:00 - 13:30:00

This seminar combines presentations of findings from two complementary research projects funded by the Nuffield Foundation which aim to improve our data and knowledge about diverse families. The first presentation from Rebecca Goldman (Fatherhood Institute) will look at the project, Contemporary Fathers in the UK: what do we know? what do we need to know? which has assessed evidence on UK fathers, including an extensive literature review, and is led by Adrienne Burgess at the Fatherhood Institute. The second presentation from Caroline Bryson (Bryson Purdon Social Research LLP) will look at the project, Understanding the lives of separating and separated families in the UK: what evidence do we need? Caroline will assess how far the UK’s existing survey, administrative and other research data on separated families are – and currently are not – able to provide the range of evidence needs articulated by researchers, policy makers and practitioners.

On 24 March, the world commemorates the day in 1882 when Dr Robert Koch announced his discovery of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. UCL-TB takes this opportunity each year to highlight contemporary research innovation and future challenges in a one-day symposium co-organised by LSHTM and UCL. Our theme for World TB Day 2018 is the challenge of antimicrobial resistant TB, and will include a debate that tackles the question: ‘Do we need host-directed therapy if we have a universal drug regimen?’ By including presentations that cover a diverse range of topics (including: laboratory sciences, epidemiology, health economics, policy research and modelling) from world leaders in their field, we aim to encourage discussion and debate around some of the most important themes in our fight against TB. Tickets are free of charge but limited, so do please book early to guarantee your place.

Location: John Snow Lecture Theatre, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine Keppel Street , London, WC1E 7HT
