Susan Greenfield Speaking



Susan has spent many years identifying and characterising novel brain mechanisms linked to neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. As the population in general lives longer, these diseases that are usually associated with older age will become an ever-greater presence in society.

Her research has seen her recognized as one of the foremost experts in the field, developing her theory of neurodegeneration and becoming the driving force behind the biotech firm that she founded and of which she is the CEO – Neuro-Bio Ltd.

Book Susan to talk on this emotive, timely and relevant topic.

Screen Technologies

What effect are computer games, social media and the internet in general having on the brains of users around the world? With these technologies still being in their relative infancy, the long-term impacts are not yet evident, but Baroness Greenfield suggests that 21st century living could be the basis for an issue she terms ‘Mind Change’.

Like the impact of climate change on the environment and the furious arguments that it inspires between those who feel we are doomed, those who suggest it is exaggerated and those who are hopeful that science can save us, Susan believes that the effect of modern tech on how future generations will think and feel – mind change – will also engender energetic debate and dispute. How do they alter how we process information, the degree to which we take risks, how we socialise and empathise with others and even how we view our own identity?

Gain an insight on this intriguing topic by booking Susan to speak at your event.

The point where philosophy and neuroscience intersect is fascinating and Susan speaks engagingly on this topic that brings together two of her great passions.

Using her expert research into the human mind, Susan will shed light on one of life’s biggest questions – how do we generate consciousness and an awareness of our own identity?

You will learn about how research into neuronal assemblies is helping us to better understand the link between local events in single cells of the brain with large-scale events in macro brain regions and how that relates to our concept of consciousness.

This is a topic that is thought provoking for everyone, presented in a way that will be understandable to the non-specialist.

Women in Science

A UNESCO Institute for Statistics report shows that less than 30% of the world’s researchers are women. As one of the world’s most vociferous advocates of female scientists and the first female director of the Royal Institution, Susan is all too familiar with the challenges facing women in science.

Baroness Susan Greenfield has reported to government on the most pressing issues facing female scientists, including:

  • The unpopularity of science with schoolgirls
  • The unpopularity of the physical sciences
  • Sexism and the glass ceiling for senior posts
  • Childcare provision for non-tenured female scientists

She continues to work tirelessly with a passion to level the playing field and work on innovative ways to increase the numbers of women in science.

To find out more about this topic, including why we find ourselves in this situation and how to resolve the issues at stake, book Susan to talk at your event.
