Crick lecture | Technician Week

This week's lecture marks Crick Technician Week and takes a different format. Lord David Sainsbury, Rob Buckle, and Kelly Vere join Paul Nurse for a discussion on the importance of technical expertise in the success of UK Research.

Crick Lectures

Crick Lectures are delivered by leading internationally-renowned scientists from the Francis Crick Institute and elsewhere and cover the full spectrum of biomedical research. They aim to be relatively accessible to scientists in all biomedical disciplines, whilst also offering something for the specialist.

The talks are open to scientists from other institutes and universities from across London and beyond. You should have a minimum of graduate-level biological knowledge to attend and fully engage with these talks. Please pre-register if you would like to attend. Find out more

Join us on the 7th of March for a Crick Lecture with a difference - a notable and influential panel of guests hosted by Paul Nurse will discuss the importance of technical expertise to the success of UK research.

Institutes, funders, and the wider scientific community are working together to make the UK a global powerhouse in science. Significant progress has been made nation-wide in assessing technical capability and capacity, setting goals across research and academia, and taking action to improve the visibility, impact and sustainability of the technical community.

We are delighted to welcome our panel - Rob Buckle Chief Science Officer for the Medical Research Council, Lord David Sainsbury politician, businessman and philanthropist, and Kelly Vere the Director of The UK Institute for Technical Skills & Strategy.

Paul Nurse will facilitate the discussion.
