Dr John Gurdon at the ARMI Speaker Series

As part of the ARMI Speaker series Dr John Gurdon will be giving a lecture on Thursday 2nd October in the South 1 Theatre, Building 64, Clayton Campus.

Dr Gurdon is Distinguished Group Leader and Founder Member of the Wellcome Trust/CRUK Gurdon Institute, Cambridge and will be talking not only about his current research but also his early days in science.

Dr Gurdon was the joint winner of the Nobel Prize for Science in 2012 for his work leading to the understanding that mature specialised cells could be 'reprogrammed' back towards a state that was not specialised to any one purpose, but open to become many kinds of cells "for discovery that mature cells can be reprogrammed to become pluripotent".
He will be taking questions from around 12 noon for 30 minutes.
