A series of lectures, inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, will highlight the University of Edinburgh’s internationally acclaimed medical research and show that keen detective work is still essential for 21st century doctors. Conan Doyle drew inspiration for Sherlock Holmes when he was a medical student at Edinburgh and based his character on the Professor of Medicine Joseph Bell, who was known for his meticulous attention to detail. The lectures will show that, just like Sherlock Holmes, today’s medical sleuths must use powers of observation and deduction not only to make the right diagnosis but also to find new treatments.
