Dr Tess Lawrie – the first speaker in our brand new science programme


On September 30th, Dr Tess Lawrie discusses the role of research in the context of the Covid-19 health emergency and ahead of her talk we thought you might like to know a little more about her!

Dr. Tess Lawrie is the Director of The Evidence-Based Medicine Consultancy Ltd & Ebmcsquared CiC, a community interest research company committed to improving the quality of healthcare through rigorous research. Her range of research experience and expertise in both developing and developed countries uniquely positions her to evaluate and design research for a variety of healthcare settings. Tess is a frequent member of technical teams responsible for developing international guidelines and she is a consultant to the World Health Organization.

Whereas Dr. Lawrie’s biggest clients happen to be those who are involved in the suppression of repurposed drugs, she has decided to speak out in protest against the current medical establishment at considerable personal risk. Accordingly, she co-founded the British Ivermectin Recommendation Development Group (BIRD), an international panel of experts dedicated to the transparent and accurate scientific research of Ivermectin. On April 24, 2021, she convened the International Ivermectin for COVID Conference, the first such symposium in the world held to focus on Ivermectin to prevent and treat COVID-19.

During the conference, she delivered a monumental closing address, one that will be recorded in the annals of medical history:

“They who design the trials and control the data also control the outcome. So, this system of industry-led trials needs to be put to an end. Data from ongoing and future trials of novel COVID treatments must be independently controlled and analyzed. Anything less than total transparency cannot be trusted.

It is an outcome we are all invested in, and we hope you will join us for this fascinating and important talk kicking off the new season’s science programme at Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution. Get tickets now.
