Astbury Conversation

Public Event

Public Engagement Event - Seeing into Cells Tuesday 26 April 2022

Every living organism is made up of complex molecules, built from millions of atoms which perform all of the chemical reactions essential for life. Richard Henderson spent years looking into this mysterious and hidden world. His lecture, ‘Zooming in on the Molecules of Life’ will give you a unique insight – not only into this fascinating area, but also into his path to being awarded a Nobel Prize.

You can also find out more about the University’s research in this area, including a ‘hands-on’ exhibition of some of the work taking place at Leeds, followed by a wine reception.
