Speaker information

Professor Chris Whitty, is a Physician and Epidemiologist who works in public health and policy. Professor of Public and International Health at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), alongside continuing LSHTM and NHS roles, between March 2009 - October 2015 he was seconded as Chief Scientific Advisor and Director Research & Evidence, UK to the Department for International Development (DFID).

There are barriers to getting science into policy, and these include both problems of reception in government, but also supply and synthesis from the scientific community. Chris Whitty has witnessed these processes as Chief Scientific Advisor and Director Research & Evidence to the Department for International Development (DFID). Now his term has come to a close he joins us at UCL to reflect on his experiences.
