Kathy Niakan will speak on Gene Editing in Human Embryos.
The OIBC Anne McLaren Lecture is held in conjunction with Kellogg College and the Trustees of the Oxford International Biomedical Centre. Dr Anne McLaren, DBE, Hon DSc, FRS (1927-2007) was a Trustee of the Oxford International Biomedical Centre. Her distinction as an experimental scientist in the field of mammalian embryology was matched by her concern for the ethical and legal consequences of in vivo fertilisation (IVF) and other clinical advances in human embryology. She is commemorated in Anne McLaren House at Kellogg College.
Tea will be served from 17:00 and the lecture will begin at 17:30. All are welcome and admission is free.
Kathy Niakan is a group leader investigating the mechanisms of lineage specification in human embryos and stem cells at the Francis Crick Institute.
