Lowbury Lectures

Edward LowburyIntroduction

Professor Edward Joseph Lister Lowbury lends his name to an annual lecture sponsored by the Society. In 1998 and 2002, the Lowbury lectures opened the 4th and 5th International Conferences which were held in the city where his namesake, Joseph Lister, pioneered the first practical expression of infection control. A pioneer himself, Edward Lowbury is the doyen of modern infection control and his work on matters as fundamental as disinfection of hands and cleaning hospital floors is still pertinent today.
