This will be the fourth of a prestigious series of lectures held in commemoration of the life and work of Edith Rebecca (Becky) Saunders who made major contributions to the understanding of genetics and heredity at the beginning of the 20th century. Saunders entered Newnham College in 1884, continued her postgraduate research as a Bathurst student from 1888 to 1889, and later became the director of the Balfour Biological Laboratory for Women in 1899. She was Director of Studies for Natural Sciences at Newnham between 1918 and 1925 and President of the Genetical Society from 1936-1938.

We are delighted to welcome Professor Dame Caroline Dean, Royal Society Professor at the John Innes Centre, Norwich as our speaker for the 2024 Saunders Lecture. The title of Caroline’s talk is “Co-transcriptional and memory mechanisms registering winter.”

In addition, we will a hold a ceremony to unveil Genetics Society Blue Plaques honouring Edith Saunders and William Bateson. As well as a Blue Plaque to celebrate the Nobel prize work completed by Sir Martin Evans in the Department of Genetics building.

This talk is part of the General series.
