Nuclear Reprogramming: past, present and prospects, Sir John Gurdon

It sounds like the stuff of science fiction but changing one kind of cell to act like another is nothing new. In fact, in some of the first experiments of their kind, our next public speaker Sir John Gurdon was able to do just that more than fifty years ago.

This work with frogs was later used to clone Dolly the sheep and led to Sir Gurdon sharing the Nobel Prize for showing mature cells can be converted to stem cells.

In this talk, Sir Gurdon will discuss the history of this research and its applications in medical science and beyond.

When: Saturday September 27, talk begins at 5.30pm, followed by refreshments with the speaker from 6.30pm - 7.30pm.

Where: The Shine Dome, Gordon St, Acton, ACT 2601

Booking are essential, $6 entry, free parking
