Shaken Baby Syndrome: How an un-validated medical hypothesis leads to miscarriages of justice in criminal and family courts. Dr. Waney Squier is a consultant neuropathologist to the Oxford University John Radcliffe Hospitals and honorary clinical lecturer at Oxford University (U.K.). She is a member of the British Neuropathological Society and the British Paediatric Neurology Association, and she is an elected fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and the Royal College of Pathologists. She was among the first in the world to recognize the criminal justice implications of scientific research that cast doubt on the medical hypothesis known as Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS). Her influence has been felt around the world. She has written reports or testified as an expert witness in more than 160 cases heard in 12 countries. In addition to the Champion of Justice Award, Dr. Squier has received the Pearce Prize in Neurophysiology and the William Hey Medal.
