Event description

Description

The Tinbergen Society, Merton College hosts:

Professor Sir John Gurdon DPhil DSc FRS, Nobel Laureate

"From nuclear transfer to prospects for cell replacement therapy"

The Society is once again delighted to welcome John Gurdon, world-renowned developmental biologist, to Merton College to speak about his greatest work. Dr Gurdon has over his career pioneered the field of developmental biology, most notably with his famous experiments of nuclear transplantation in Xenopus frogs, and the discovery that mature cells could be reprogrammed into stem cells. He started as a student at Oxford, spent time at CalTech and then settled in Cambridge, where he co-founded the Institute that now bears his name.

As recipient of the Royal Medal, the International Prize for Biology, the Wolf Prize, the Lasker Award and of course the 2012 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine, Dr Gurdon has built a huge reputation, and the Society is privileged to host him.

There will be a drinks reception after the talk from 6-7pm in the theatre's foyer. All are welcome.
