Description

Please join us for the 2019 Derek Denton Oration in Science & the Arts, 'The Vital Question: Why is life the way it is?' presented by Professor Nick Lane, on Tuesday 26 March.

Nick Lane is Professor of Evolutionary Biochemistry, Department of Genetics, Evolution and Environment, University College London, and Co-Director of the UCL Centre for Life's Origin and Evolution (CLOE). He was a founding member of the UCL Consortium for Mitochondrial Research.

Nick's oration will argue that the unanticipated trajectory of life on Earth is not explained by genes alone, but by the peculiar mechanism through which cells generate their energy, through electrical force-fields on their membranes.
