Our hands allow us to do, create, express, feel, give and receive. With a complex arrangements of 27 bones, multiple ligaments, muscles and more receptors in the skin than the human eye, it is a truly ‘sensational’ organ. But what happens when injuries or diseases affect our hands? Can surgery and therapy restore function? How do people regain the use of their hands? In this lecture, Prof Christina Jerosch-Herold from UEA's School of Health Sciences will show how research and innovation have contributed to the assessment and treatment of hand problems and what challenges remain.

Inaugural lectures recognise and celebrate the promotion of UEA academics to the position of professor, whilst giving audiences the chance to hear about their research and its impact on society. You don’t have to be an expert to enjoy these open public lectures and there is a chance to meet the speaker at a free drinks reception after the talk.

These lectures are free and there's no need to book; simply turn up on the night!
