Tam Dalyell Prize Lecture 2022 - Andrew Horne and Philippa Saunders

Endometriosis is a chronic pain condition that affects 1 in 10 women. There is no cure for the condition and because it can cause severe pain and other symptoms like fatigue and infertility it has a significant impact on wellbeing. Prof Philippa Saunders and Prof Andrew Horne are determined to find new ways to tackle endometriosis.

This year they share the University of Edinburgh’s Tam Dalyell Prize for Excellence in Engaging the Public with Science. This is in recognition of their work to include lived experience and the needs of people with endometriosis in their research, allowing them to find new ways to approach this devastating condition.
