The 2020 CSaP Annual Lecture will be delivered by Professor Dame Sally Davies, Master of Trinity College, Cambridge and former Chief Medical Officer for England and Chief Medical Advisor to the UK Government.

In this lecture, Dame Sally Davies will give a first-hand account of what it takes to get the right science to inform the right policy questions at the right time. To see the development of policy through from initial framing of the question to implementation requires patience, luck and determination. Dame Sally tells the behind-the-scenes story of her work on AMR , drawing lessons for scientists, civil servants, politicians and others committed to evidence-informed policy.

She is best known for successfully paving the way for international and domestic efforts in the fight against antimicrobial resistance and leading the UK government’s response to health emergencies including Ebola, pandemic flu, and the Novichok attacks.
