All alumni are invited to attend the Lister Conference 2012.

In March 2012, King’s College London will be hosting a major conference on Lister’s life, methods and ideas, and will be examining both the significance of his techniques in their historical context, and the enduring impact that Lister has had on twentieth- and twenty-first-century medical and surgical practice. Marking the hundredth anniversary of Lister’s death, the conference will be of interest to academic historians, clinical and healthcare scientists and practitioners , bioscience, health policy and management professionals, and those with an interest in Lister, Listerism and the development of antiseptic surgery.

The conference will be run in association with the Royal Society and the Hunterian Museum at the Royal College of Surgeons, and events will take place at both of these institutions and at the King’s College London Strand Campus.

The programme will consist of:

- Keynote speeches and lectures

- Group sessions and parallel sessions

- Exhibitions of Lister’s instruments drawings and teaching aids

- A guided London walk relating to Lister’s working practices
