CCTS Spring Research Day 2021

Join us for the CCTS Spring Research Day featuring Author John M. Barry

Our distinguished guest for the keynote on April 7th will be Mr. John Barry, an award-winning author whose books have also involved him in policy making.  You can read Mr. Barry’s bio here. Among his notable works are the books:

 

“The Great Influenza: The Story of the Deadliest Pandemic in History”

 

“Rising Tide: The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 and How It Changed America”

 

“Roger Williams and The Creation of the American Soul: Church, State, and the Birth of Liberty”

 

Mr. Barry’s highly acclaimed and insightful book about the 1918 Influenza pandemic has provided us with considerable historical context for our current COVID-19 pandemic.  Mr. Barry will be leading a panel discussion and Q&A on pandemics from a medical and historical context

"The CCTS Research Day highlights and celebrates the considerable spectrum of translational science at UK and other partner institutions.  This year, we hold this celebration in the shadow of the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are delighted to have a keynote panel discussion with author and historian John Barry."   Phil Kern, MD, CCTS Director          “The Cooperative is pleased to partner with the CCTS and introduce author John Barry.  Barry's historical research into the 1918 influenza pandemic has demonstrated the ways in which public policy failures led to the spread of the epidemic and showed that the disease fundamentally reshaped public health infrastructures.  Now, a hundred years later, as we are in the throes of another pandemic, we reflect on the lessons that were not learned and consider what long-term impact the pandemic might have on our public health infrastructure.”    Karen Petrone, PhD, Director A&S Cooperative for the Humanities and Social Sciences (Co-Sponsor of the Keynote Panel and Co-Moderator)          "CCTS Research Day showcases the interdisciplinary breadth of clinical and translational science research at the University of Kentucky and beyond. Our panel discussion with keynote speaker John Barry, the author of The Great Influenza, will illuminate how history can help us translate previous pandemic experiences into present-day public health actions."   Claire Clark, PhD, Associate Professor (Co-Moderator)
