The Rosalind Franklin Lecture 2016 | 'Why evidence really matters', with Professor Dame Anne Glover
Held on the week of International Women’s Day, the Rosalind Franklin Lecture will explore and celebrate the contribution of women towards the promotion and advancement of Humanism – whether through achievements in science, philosophy, or the promotion of democracy and human rights – in Britain and around the world.
The first lecture in the series will be delivered by Professor Dame Anne Glover, a former chief scientific adviser to the Scottish Government and European Commission, and chaired by BBC journalist Samira Ahmed. It will take place in Central London on the evening of Thursday 10 March, to complement International Women’s Day two days earlier. Drawing on a lifetime of experience as a scientist and an advisor to political leaders, she will tackle an important theme for our age: 'Why evidence really matters.'
The series is named for Rosalind Franklin, a pioneering chemist who was crucial to the discovery of the unique double helix structure of DNA.
Doors open at 19:00 for a 19:30 start. Tickets cost £12 for the general public, £9 for BHA members, and only £6 for students.
