Women and Science: Women at the Frontier of Biotech

When:
Thu 17 Oct 2019
Cost:
$15 SMSA and RS Members - $20 Guests & General
Details:
Susan Pond outlines how biotechnology is being put to use for the good of humanity and the planet, and examines the role of women in this revolution from the time of Rosalind Franklin’s famous Photo 51 in 1952 through to today. Franklin’s work was fundamental to the celebrated revelation of the twisted ladder of the DNA double helix by Watson and Crick in 1953.

This opened the floodgates to a revolution in biology and to Nobel Prizes being awarded to 13 women since 1964. Susan will also look forward to future applications and review some of the challenges involved in putting nature’s machinery to work.
