Sherrington Prize Lecture: The cell-adhesion code that underlies the molecular logic of synapse formation

On Friday 29 April 2022 at 4pm, Nobel Laureate Professor Thomas Südhof will give a lecture in the annual Sir Charles Sherrington Prize Lecture Series.

The talk, hosted by the Department of Physiology, Anatomy & Genetics, will be held in the Blakemore Lecture Theatre, Sherrington. Full details, including an abstract, are available on the Oxford Talks website.

Südhof, a neuroscientist, is affiliated with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Stanford University School of Medicine. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2013, together with James Rothman and Randy Schekman, for their discoveries on the regulation of vesicle traffic in cells.

The lecture series honours Sir Charles Sherrington, who became the Waynflete Professor of Physiology at the University of Oxford in 1913. Sherrington was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1932 with Edgar Adrian for their work on neuronal function.
