About this event

  • Date and time Thu 28 Mar 2019 from 5:30pm to 8:40pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Clinical Neurosciences

To the world, Sir Roger Bannister was known as the first man to run a 4-minute mile. But among neurologists, he was preeminent for his pioneering work on autonomic medicine at St Mary’s, the National Hospital, and then at Oxford. We are greatly honored that his widow and family have given us permission to launch the Sir Roger Bannister Lecture in his honour, and delighted that his friend and former colleague, Professor Christopher Mathias has agreed to give the first Sir Roger Bannister Lecture at this event, entitled A Cinderella comes of age: the increasing impact of autonomic medicine in the new millennium - Sir Roger Bannister’s legacy.

Professor Christopher Mathias created the Neurovascular Medicine and Autonomic Unit at St Mary’s Hospital, and the Autonomic Unit at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, London. Now amalgamated at Queen Square, and the Autonomic & Neurovascular Medicine Centre at the Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth. These have incorporated the latest techniques in autonomic medicine. 

The event will also include short-listed presentations of clinical research and clinical cases by trainees in the Clinical Neurosciences for the Section’s biennial President’s Prize.  

 Topics include:

  • Best current practice in some areas of neurology 
  • How to work up and investigate neurological cases
  • Explore the increasing impact of autonomic medicine in the new millennium
