Robert Grant Lecture
The annual Robert Grant Lecture is held in honour of Professor Robert Edmond Grant (born 11 November 1793 in Edinburgh; died 23 August 1874 at home, 2 Euston Grove, more). Grant was a zoologist, an expert on comparative anatomy, an evolutionist, and a political radical.
Normally these lectures are held in November, celebrating Grant's birthday. (Number 16 was delivered in March.) The series was initiated by Helen Chatterjee to mark the relaunch of the Grant Museum of Zoology and Comparative Anatomy in 1997.
