John Scott Haldane Prize Lecture: Mapping the Human Body One Cell at a Time

On Wednesday 23 February 2022 at 4pm, Dr Sarah Teichmann FRS (Wellcome Sanger Institute and Cambridge University), will deliver the second John Scott Haldane Prize Lecture.

More details about the lecture, entitled "Mapping the Human Body One Cell at a Time", can be found on OxTalks website.

All University of Oxford members welcome!

The lecture series honours J.S. Haldane (1860-1936), who is known as the father of oxygen therapy. He did pioneering work on human breathing, poison gases and pulmonary disease, and invented an early gas mask. He also introduced the practice of bringing canaries into coal mines to test for toxic fumes. 

More information about the Haldane Prize Lecture Series can be found on the Department of Physiology, Anatomy & Genetics website.
