Event Details

The annual Murray Lecture, presented by Dr Bruce Stillman, President of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

We take it for granted that our DNA replicates normally in our cells every day, but when these processes go wrong in our body's cells we can end up with abnormal cells, the wrong rate of cell replacement and even cancer. When DNA replication goes wrong in a developing baby, it can cause primordial dwarfism, microcephaly or a small brain.

In the annual Murray Lecture, Professor Bruce Stillman, President of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in New York, will discuss how the human genome is copied and inherited each time a cell divides. Professor Stillman's research has elucidated the mechanism of how a cycle of copying the DNA double helix is initiated and how it is coordinated with chromosome segregation during mitosis – when a normal body cell segregates its chromosomes to form two identical body cells.

Delve deep into your cells and find out how important DNA replication is to you every day.


There will be an interactive session following the lecture for audiences as well as a cocktail reception.
