This report by Dr. Catherine Brown (@neolawrencian), who attended the event, is based on her transcription (as near to verbatim as possible) of the presentations, questions, and answers as they were given. Speakers and questioners were then given the opportunity to clarify their statements post facto. It should be noted that Professor Paul McKeigue’s presentation in particular has been expanded to reproduce the full text of the Powerpoint presentation from which he was speaking. The hyperlinks have been largely sourced by the report-compiler, whose editorial text insertions are indicated by square brackets.
It was written at the invitation of the event’s organiser, Sheila Coombes, and has been approved by her and by the speakers.
Some readers may find the images of dead bodies that appear below distressing.
The views expressed are the speakers’ own.
