     Dr Theo George Wilson Annual Lecture: “Building Microbial Chemical Factories:  Design, Assembly, and Engineering of Biological Routes to Chemical Compounds” by Professor Kristala Prather (MIT)

    The Institute for Molecular Science and Engineering’s invites you to attend their sixth Dr Theo George Wilson Annual Lecture :

    Building Microbial Chemical Factories: Design, Assembly, and Engineering of Biological Routes to Chemical Compounds by Professor Kristala L. J. Prather (MIT)

    Our Dr Theo George Wilson Lecture is the flagship event in our calendar of activities, with the aim of drawing together a diverse audience from across Imperial’s student and staff body as well as from our community of friends and stakeholders. Our objective with the Dr Theo George Wilson Lecture is to inspire and engage the IMSE community by increasing its awareness of wider challenges and activities. For those who can attend in person there will be a drinks reception after the lecture in the City and Guilds foyer just outside of the lecture theatre where you will be able to network with our speaker and other guests.

    This lecture is open to all.

    Please note that you do not need register for the annual lecture if you are attending the symposium as this serves as the keynote speech for the symposium.
