UCL Department of Science and Technology Studies (STS) holds the JBS Haldane Memorial Lectures to honour JBS Haldane, a polymath in the life sciences, science communication, and science policy.
We launched the STS JBS Haldane Memorial Lectures in 2014 in honour of UCL Professor JBS Haldane, a polymath not only in the life sciences but also in science communication and science policy. We aim to hold JBS Haldane Memorial Lectures each academic year, rotating through our different research clusters.
These talks are free to attend and open to the academic community. See the STS events calendar for upcoming talks in the series. Haldane Lectures normally are published as part of the STS Occasional Papers series.
