Join Professor Dame Athene Donald in conversation with Professor Uta Frith on May 5, 5.30pm at Churchill College in the third in our series—'Give Me Inspiration! The Paradigm Shift'—exploring the individual paths eminent academics have taken to get to the top.

Uta Frith was born and educated in Germany and trained in clinical psychology at the Institute of Psychiatry London University. From 1968 to 2006 she was a research scientist with the Medical Research Council and affiliated to UCL. She is now Emeritus Professor of Cognitive Development at UCL-ICN and Visiting Professor at Aarhus University.

Uta is best known for her work on autism and dyslexia. She is astonished that she has received many honours, such as honorary degrees from Gothenburg, St Andrews, Palermo, Nottingham, York, Aston and Cambridge, and fellowships from learned societies, such as the British Academy, Royal Society, Leopoldina and US National Academy of Sciences. To top it all, in 2012 she received an Honorary DBE.
