Professor Edwards is a Life Fellow of Caius and former Professor of Biometry. In the past he has worked with Sir Howard Florey (Nobel Prize Laureate), Sir Ronald Fisher (former President) and Luca Cavalli-Sforza (Honorary Fellow).

His interests are in evolutionary biology and genetics. In this talk he will first discuss Howard Florey’s involvement in the discovery of penicillin, for which he famously won the Nobel Prize. He will then discuss the work of Ronald Fisher, described by Richard Dawkins as ‘the greatest biologist since Darwin’, involving genetics and evolutionary trees.
