Event details

Sir Paul Nurse is a geneticist and cell biologist who is one of the most distinguished and decorated of UK scientists. He has been awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology of Medicine,the Albert Lasker Award and the Royal Society’s Royal and Copley Medals.

We are privileged to have him as our 2023 Lecturer. This year sponsored by Sheen Stickland Chartered Accountants.

In this Lecture he takes up the challenge of defining life, what does it actually mean to be alive?     He traces the roots of his own curiosity and knowledge to reveal how science works, both now and in the past. Using his personal experiences, in and out of the lab, he shares with us the challenges, the lucky breaks, and the thrilling eureka moments of discovery.

To survive the challenges that face the human race today – from climate change, to pandemics, loss of biodiversity and food security – it is vital that we all understand what life is.
