AstraZeneca Nobel Medicine Initiative and Manchester Cancer Research Centre are proud to present 2001 Nobel Laureate Dr. Tim Hunt who will be giving a one off seminar at the University on "Lessons from a life in science: how to get a Nobel Prize"
Starting from Peter Medawar’s famous description of scientific research as “the art of the soluble”, in this general lecture 2001 Nobel Laureate in Medicine Tim Hunt will describe how he chose his research questions and how he came upon their solutions. Relying on what he describes as his particular ability for “Spotting tiny clues that give the game away”, he reveals how the answers revealed themselves “Often more by luck than full-frontal attack”.
This will be a fantastic opportunity to hear an internationally renowned scientist give a lecture in Manchester and there will be opportunity to ask questions after the seminar. We are expecting a high turnout so please ensure you are at the theatre in plenty of time, this is a free event and registration is not necessary, all are welcome.
