Professor Steve Jones with UCL Academy students


As part of its outreach activities, UCL Genetics Institute is running series of lectures at UCL Academy in Swiss Cottage. The aim of the lectures is to encourage students to learn about the exciting possibilities of a career in genetics and bioinformatics. 

In March 2014, Professor Steve Jones gave talk titled “Is Man just another animal: genetics and human evolution?” to UCL Academy students.  The A-level students enjoyed Professor Jones’ talk and asked many interesting questions afterwards. Further talks from Professor Nick Wood, Dr Rachel Batterham and Professor Steve Humphries to follow.
