The Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health in collaboration with The Linnean Society will host the 2019 Irene Manton lecture at The John Rylands Library.
The lecture celebrates and commemorates the significant contribution made by women to the Natural Sciences and this year our keynote speaker will be Jan Bradley, Professor of Parasitology from the University of Nottingham.
The lecture is free to attend and is open to everyone, however we especially welcome A-level students with the hope of creating further interest in the study of natural sciences.
The Linnean Society of London is the world’s oldest active biological society, founded in 1788. The Society uniquely embraces the entire sweep of natural history. It promotes the study of all aspects of the biological sciences, with particular emphasis on evolution, taxonomy, biodiversity and sustainability. At the same time, the Society reaches out to future biologists through schools and educational programmes. Irene Manton was the first female president of the Linnean Society, a British botanist who continued her studies at The University of Manchester, resulting in a PhD.
