Event description

Description


'Science: Sheep, Goat or Unicorn'

We are in an age of uncertainty and insecurity and our reaction is often to build walls in an attempt to shut out the perceived enemy. A wall of particular concern is the one that we have built over many years between science and society. In this lecture Professor Leyser will discuss why dismantling the wall between science and society must be a priority.

Dame Ottoline Leyser is Professor of Plant Development and Director of the Sainsbury Laboratory at the University of Cambridge. Professor Leyser received her BA (1986) and PhD (1990) in Genetics from the University of Cambridge. In 2017 she was appointed Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire for services to plant science, science in society and equality and diversity in science.
