Medical Innovations – Blood and Bacteria
Dr Heidi Doughty and Dr Emma Hutley
Before the First World War we had limited understanding of how to collect and store blood, complete a successful blood transfusion or fight infection. However, as a result of research before and during the war, there were exciting medical innovations in pathology which revolutionised both military and civilian medicine. Join MOD pathologists Dr Heidi Doughty and Dr Emma Hutley as they discuss the challenges and innovations of frontline medicine, both past and present.
Event in association with the Royal College of Pathologists www.rcpath.org
