Crick Lectures

Crick Lectures

The Crick Lectures are open to researchers from Leicester through a collaboration formed as part of our Wellcome Trust Institutional Strategic Support Fund (WTISSF).

The lectures are delivered by leading internationally-renowned scientists and aim to be relatively accessible to scientists in other disciplines, while also offering something for the specialist.

Crick Lectures typically take place on Thursdays at 4pm in the auditorium. The Francis Crick Institute is located directly opposite St Pancras Station, London, thus making seminar attendance a relatively easy possibility. We have funding through the ISSF to pay for standard class train travel to get you there and back, if you would otherwise struggle to cover the train fare; contact Anna Harding for further information: aijh1@le.ac.uk
