Event description

Description

The Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health in collaboration with The Linnean Society will host the 2019 Irene Manton lecture at The John Rylands Library.

The lecture celebrates and commemorates the significant contribution made by women to the Natural Sciences and this year our keynote speaker will be Professor Jan Bradley, professor of Parasitology from the University of Nottingham.

The lecture is free to attend and is open to everyone, however we especially welcome A-level students with the hope of creating further interest in the study of natural sciences.

The Linnean Society of London is the world’s oldest active biological society, founded in 1788. The Society uniquely embraces the entire sweep of natural history. It promotes the study of all aspects of the biological sciences, with particular emphasis on evolution, taxonomy, biodiversity and sustainability. At the same time, the Society reaches out to future biologists through schools and educational programmes. Irene Manton was the first female president of the Linnean Society, a British botanist who continued her studies at The University of Manchester, resulting in a PhD.

Registration will take place from 4.45pm with the event starting promptly at 5pm. A cheese and drinks reception will take place after the lecture.

Further information will be sent to attendees a week before the event.

Should you have any specific requirements, accessibility needs or other specific requests please notify srbmh@manchester.ac.uk by Friday 22nd November and we will ensure your needs are catered for.

We look forward to seeing you there for what will be a truly inspiring evening.
