Newcastle Dental School & Hospital, Founders & Benefactors Lecture

This event used to be one of the highlights of the Newcastle Dental School year – I remember being thoroughly intimidated having to walk in procession in my plain black, short undergraduate gown with all the silks and ermines of the “high hiedyins” of the Dental School.

In the past it was called the Founders & Benefactors Lecture and coincided with the “homecoming” weekend for dental graduates which also featured the Dental Graduates Ball. Times have changed, the ball no longer happens and the weekend has moved from March to June to be included in the general reunion weekend for all Alumni of The University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. I see that it’s now the “Public Lecture” 2014.

Last year Martin Kelleher was the speaker, this year it’s Joerd van der Meer and his subject is digital imaging – looks like a really good event.
