Familial hypercholesterolaemia – inherited high levels of cholesterol – is the most common inherited disease and the leading cause of heart disease. Though its cause is well known and adequate treatment, mainly statins, is available, it is heavily underdiagnosed and undertreated. There is an urgent worldwide need for early detection and treatment of this common, extremely high-risk condition.

Public lectures at Newcastle University are free and open to all. The aim is to offer a programme that will inform, stimulate, entertain, and excite debate.
Many speakers are leaders in their field and all have something of special interest to convey. The lectures cover a wide range of disciplines and frequently include key contemporary issues, particularly those that affect our daily lives.
Any views expressed by speakers are their own, and do not necessarily reflect the views of Newcastle University.
All lectures are free and open to all, with spaces allocated on a first-come first-served basis. For more popular talks an overspill room will be in operation.
Recordings of some past lectures can be found here.
