The inaugural SEESAW Seminar Series - Wednesday 29 March

We would like to invite you to attend the inaugural SEESAW seminar series on Wednesday 29th March 2017 12.00-13.00, followed by a networking lunch


12.00 – 13.00 in TPSC Lecture Theatre  ‘Curing Addiction: The Ultimate behaviour change challenge!’

The Addiction Research Group (Caitlin Notley & Felix Naughton) have managed to persuade Robert West, Professor of Health Psychology UCL to deliver the first talk. We have all heard how engaging Robert’s talks are, so do encourage you all to attend, even if the main themes are not your main research interests.


1.15-2.30 Networking lunch (aimed specifically  at early career researchers) in the SCVA Modern Life café 

This is a chance for individuals to meet up and discuss issues and concerns related to their career development with other early career researchers and senior academics, and to gain advice and guidance from a highly regarded researcher in the field of Health Psychology.

The lunch and networking event is limited to 30 places, we therefore invite interested individuals to get in touch to book a place as soon as possible.

Please email Pascale via,   if you would like to attend.


14.45-15.30 in TPSC Room 0.1 Q&A Session with Robert West

A Q&A session for all who may have a specific interest in smoking cessation, addictions or health behaviour change - applied practice or research. We particularly welcome Health Professionals to this session, but it is open to all.


Rationale for this seminar series

The SEESAW (Supporting Excellence Equality and Satisfaction for all at Work) committee has been working hard to create a positive working culture within MED. As the role of SEESAW has evolved we have been keen to support and promote a research culture that is inclusive to all members of faculty, including our RAs and PhD students. To this end we have worked hard to start a seminar series, that has research at its heart but also offers our more junior researchers opportunities for career development and networking.
