Migrating people, migrating diseases

François Balloux (UCL Genetics Institute) will give the second seminar in the Term II Institute Research Seminar series on ancient DNA at the Institute on 21 January.

The Term II Institute Research Seminar series looking at the field of ancient DNA is being organised by Mark Thomas (UCL Genetics, Evolution and Environment) and coincides with the launch of a new ancient DNA Laboratory facility at the Institute.

François Balloux studied at the University of Lausanne, followed by postdoctoral research, first at the University of Bern and then Edinburgh.

Following an academic position at the University of Cambridge François then joined the newly formed MRC Centre for Outbreak Analysis and Modelling within the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology at Imperial College London in 2007 before being appointed Professor of Computational Systems Biology at UCL in 2012.

The seminar will be followed by a reception in the Institute's Staff Common Room (Room 609) and all are welcome.

Any enquiries about the seminar series may be directed to Mark Thomas.
