BIO Research Colloquium - Tuesday 4 June

The School of Biological Sciences will hold its annual Colloquium on Tuesday, June 4 at the Thomas Paine Study Centre, where researchers will present their latest work to colleagues and invited guests.

The day will showcase the broad range of multidisciplinary research undertaken in the School and the associated Biomedical Research Centre over the last year, giving an insight into what the future holds. The talks by senior staff of the Schools of Biological Sciences and Medicine, the Sainsbury Laboratory and the John Innes Centre in combination with poster presentations by the next generation of researchers will make cutting edge research accessible to a varied audience. 

It is with great pleasure to announce that Professor Enrico Coen will be our invited guest speaker.  He is a Cell and Developmental Plant Biologist at the John Innes Centre on the Norwich Research Park and a Fellow of the Royal Society. He is using molecular, genetic, imaging, population, ecological and computational approaches to understand how plants produce such a remarkable range of forms. His lecture entitled "Making a Difference: Genetic Diversity in the Face of Gene Flow" will give an exciting overview of his work.

The event will be held in the Thomas Paine Study Centre followed by a social get-together with drinks and nibbles in the Atrium of the Biomedical Research Centre. Everyone is welcome.
