Biomedical research has become a booming area of science, fuelled by recent technological advances in human genetics applied to improve healthcare and treat disease.

Expanding our capacity to interpret and apply these new revelations will have major implications for just about every aspect of medicine, and will affect broader aspects of our lives. Are we ready for them? 

Emerging insights into the genetic basis of human health and disease raise interesting and sometimes alarming questions about the prospects for designing our own destiny.

School group lecture places

As part of our mission to share a passion for knowledge, we have an allocation of group tickets for schools to attend our public lectures at a minimum cost. Some lectures will be relevant to the curriculum, some will simply enthral.

If you are a school teacher, you can book a ‘School group’ ticket to bring your students to the event for just £5 per group. You’ll then be asked to provide your school details and the total number in your group so that we can allocate these tickets. Students are very welcome to attend on their own at our ‘Student’ rate of £3. Please email our Administrator here if you need any help with this offer.

Post event supper

After the talk, you are welcome to join other Friends and their guests at a local restaurant to continue the discussion. You can book supper places below.
