Douglas Adams Memorial Lecture 2013

12th March 2013

Dr Adam Rutherfod, author of Creation: The Origin and The Future of Life, is to present this year’s Douglas Adams Memorial Lecture.

With a special guest introduction from Stephen Mangan, Adam will discuss how, after four billion years of evolution, and a century of taking cells apart to find out how they work, we have a pretty robust understanding of DNA, evolution and the mechanics of life, and the way scientists are just beginning to put them back together to do two things: recreate the origin of life, and invent new lifeforms to kick-start a global industrial revolution.

The lecture takes place tonight at The Royal Geographical Society. Click here for more information.
