'Let's Talk About Health' is a series of public lectures aimed at senior school pupils interested in studying medicine, veterinary medicine or the life sciences at University as well as interested members of the general public and health professionals. The series allows scientists pioneering new research at the University of Edinburgh to share their latest ideas and discoveries with the public and provides attendees with the opportunity to advance their knowledge of health and what happens in disease.

Speakers at the 21 February lecture are Prof James Boardman from the MRC Centre for Reproductive Health and Dr Sue Fletcher-Watson from the Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences.

Being born too soon or too small affects around 15 million babies around the world each year. Some of these babies grow and develop well, while others experience difficulties with development and learning. Join us to hear about research that is leading to discoveries of new ways to help children who were born premature reach their full potential in life. Hear about how brain scans have deepened our understanding of the effects of early birth on the developing brain, about innovative ways of measuring learning in infants and about how we combine these measures to understand what makes the brains of some babies do really well, and what the challenges are for others.
