You are invited to the Inaugural Lecture to be given by Professor Hemant Pandit, Professor of Orthopaedics entitled:-

“Bone Setters to Biomedical Engineers”

Hemant currently holds the post of Professor of Orthopaedics (University of Leeds) and Honorary Consultant Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust (based at Chapel Allerton Hospital for his clinical work). He is Director of Research and Innovation for Leeds Institute of Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal Medicine (LIRMM). Hemant also holds the title of Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery with University of Oxford and is a Visiting Professor at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi.

Hemant has pursued a career in translational research in Orthopaedics. He originally trained in Mumbai, India before moving to the UK in 1995. He previously worked in Oxford as an academic clinician with particular interest in hip and knee arthroplasty. He completed his DPhil in knee kinematics and was first to describe the problems associated with metal-on-metal hips (pseudotumours). Hemant’s contributions in the fields of arthroplasty, enhanced peri-operative recovery and teaching and training are well recognised. He has also made significant contributions towards capacity building and increasing research awareness in the low / middle income countries in sub-Saharan Africa. He has published more than 200 scientific articles and book chapters. He collaborates with various colleagues both nationally as well as internationally and is a member of National Joint registry (NJR) subcommittees.

Hemant is keen to expand research in the fields of translational and basic science research in musculoskeletal sciences, assessment of joint arthroplasty using surrogate measures, biomedical engineering, international health and appropriate use of big data sets to answer key clinical questions.

Refreshments will be available from 5pm and after 6.30pm at the conclusion of the lecture.
