Crick Lectures

The Crick Lectures are open to scientists from other institutes and universities in and around London.

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 (directions on the right). If you would like to come, please contact Ava Yeo: ava.yeo@crick.ac.uk
