Gurdon Institute Seminar Series

Throughout the year we host world-renowned scientists to deliver talks in person or online and to meet our researchers. Colleagues in the local science community are also invited to attend.

The Gurdon Institute Seminar Series runs mostly during the Michaelmas and Lent terms, with talks being held approximately once a month.


Many seminars are online.  Some talks are held in person in the Biochemistry Lecture Theatre, Sanger Building, Tennis Court Road (and will be live-streamed).

To join online please email laf38 or co209 at, unless otherwise noted.

See the list of previous annual Anne McLaren Lectures in this series.
