Warwick Medical School Inaugural Lecture Series

In keeping with tradition, Professors at Warwick Medical School give an Inaugural Lecture. This continues in 2014 with Leading Lights, a series of lunchtime lectures.

Nothing in microbiology makes sense except in the light of evolution

Fifty years ago, the great evolutionary biologist Theodosius Dobzhansky coined the maxim “Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution”. In this lecture, Professor Mark Pallen will illustrate Dobzhansky’s dictum with reference to the microbial world, drawing on examples from his own career to link Darwin’s Origin of Species to the origins of infection, and much more.
