AGM followed by a lecture for members and interested members of the public

Professor Gareth Williams, a medical historian and former dean of medicine at Bristol University, will be discussing key research in the 85 years between the discoveries of nuclein and the double helix. He will focus on some of the lesser known scientists and the research which contributed to the DNA story as well as the near misses and is an entertaining and informative speaker. Gareth Williams is the author of the recently published book of the same title as the lecture which has attracted very positive reviews.


The event will take place in Meeting room 6, Kenneth Dibben House, University of Southampton Science Park, Enterprise Road, Chilworth, Southampton SO16 7NS. Kenneth Dibben House is at the end of Enterprise Road (off University Parkway) and slightly set back from the other buildings.

Attendees will be sent a map and directions before the event.
