'Saving Faces': research today saves faces tomorrow
Please note that for mobiles we stream the presentation slides and audio of the speaker.
Professor and surgeon Iain Hutchison tells us about his 'Saving Faces Art Project', which charts the physical and emotional journey of patients undergoing facial surgery, and his work with BP National Portrait award winner Mark Gilbert.
He founded 'Saving Faces', The Facial Surgery Research Foundation in 2000, which leads international research and clinical trials into the treatment of oral and facial diseases.
The 30 portraits in the 'Saving Faces' art project culminated in an art exhibition that has since toured the UK, Europe and USA.
This lecture was part of an event dedicated to Professor Hutchison's project called 'Art, society and medicine: the genesis of the saving faces art project and its impact on patients, clinicians and the public'. It was held at The Royal Society of Medicine in London.
Date of lecture: 15th April 2015
