Annual Cole Lecture: The Egg and Sperm Race
1 November, 2017 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
We are delighted to welcome gyuest speaker Professor Matthew Cobb, Professor of Zoology at University of Manchester to deliver this year’s Cole Lecture
Where do we come from? For thousands of years we really had no clue. In the mid-seventeenth century, human eggs and sperm were discovered but their role wasn’t understood for another 180 years. Professor Matthew Cobb will describe how these amazing discoveries were made, and how rivalry spilled over into enmity.
