BSRC Seminar Series: Title to be announced
Professor David Colquhoun

click for details

David Colquhoun is a man of two careers. He was one of the UK’s leading pharmacologists, elected to the Royal Society in 1985  for his work in single channel work, most particularly the statistical underpinnings of this approach. He will be well known to anyone in ion channels.

Since his ‘retirement’  using his award winning science communication blog ‘dcscience.net’ he has analysed alternative medicine. He is also a prolific tweeter.

His article http://www.ucl.ac.uk/Pharmacology/dc-bits/colquhoun-nature-07.pdf was a gem.

He has turned his attention to the proper use (and mis-use) of statistics in research.

http://www.dcscience.net/?p=6681 is a very useful primer to anyone seeking to understand statistical significance.

David is an exemplar of how to communicate science and how to serve the public by bringing an informed sceptical eye to benefit society.

He is a renowned and engaging lecturer. He will focus on science communication so his lecture will be informative to all...
