The Oxford Lecture

The Oxford Lecture

On 6 August the Medical Research Society committee of Sophie Arundell, Hugo Walter and Posy Read along with Zachary Horbelt and Dr Newton were fortunate enough to attend the annual Oxford Lecture at the University of Adelaide.

Guest speaker, Prof Peter Rathjen, Vice Chancellor of the University of Adelaide, presented an engaging and informative lecture on “Stem-cell therapies and the future of medicine.” Prof Rathjen spoke comprehensively about the recent developments of embryotic stem cell technologies; knowledge which is now leading the way in improving the efficacy and sustainability of a number of medical practises.

Embryotic stem cell therapies are influencing biomedical research as well as have the potential to revolutionise regenerative medicine with 3D printed tissues and organs close to becoming a reality. A theme throughout the presentation was the importance of creativity in the advancement of biological concepts; a characteristic not always associated with medicine.

In the case of stem cell research, creativity has transformed the manufacturing process of embryotic stem cells to comply with legal, moral and ethical considerations. This lecture confirmed that the medical field is ever expanding, complex and multi-disciplined. The significant discoveries regarding the embryotic stem cell form an exciting foundation for the next generation to build upon.
