Professor of Surgical Education, Imperial College London, PhD FRCS FRCSEd FRCGP
Professor Roger Kneebone is a clinician and educationalist who leads a multi-disciplinary research group at Imperial College London. His work on innovative simulation builds on his personal experience as a surgeon and a general practitioner, and his interest in domains of expertise beyond medicine. Recent high profile public engagement events at the Science Museum, Wellcome Collection, Big Bang Science Fair and Cheltenham Festival are exploring simulation’s potential as a translational resource.
Roger has been developing simulation-based re-enactment as a means of capturing the social and technical practices of surgery from the recent past, locating these within a wider historical framework.
