With our new series of public lectures at the University, we are making science more accessible and exciting for the public.

A recently launched series of public lectures organised by the Genetics Education Networking for Innovation and Excellence - or simply put, GENIE - which is based here at the University of Leicester, is designed to make genetics and modern biomedical science simpler to understand.

The next GENIE public lectures double bill will take place on Tuesday 15 February 2011 when Professor Charalambos Kyriacou will speak about 'Genes and Biorhythms' and Dr Turi King will pose the question 'What's in a name? The link between surname and genetics.'

Lectures are held in the Frank and Katherine May Lecture Theatre in the Henry Wellcome Building on Lancaster Road, starting at 6.30pm. Each of the two lectures will be approximately 30 minutes in length and the event will be followed by a drinks reception.

For more information and to book your place please contact Laura Ellis on lfe3@le.ac.uk or 0116 252 3749.

The feedback from the audience who visited the first GENIE lecture has been very positive so don’t miss your chance to engage with science on your level.
