Date: Thursday 17 November 2022

On Thursday 17th November 2022, from 7pm until 8.30pm The Royal Institute Talk: Back From The Brink: Genetics in Plant Conservation at The Royal Institute, 21 Albemarle Street, London, W15 4BS. Genetic studies play a role in many aspects of life in the 21st century. One role is informing conservation policy. Join Michael Fay as he explores the conservation of the native lady’s slipper orchid, the genetics of plants that have been studied across a wide range of species, and how this has helped scientists make conservation recommendations. In this talk, discover how a plant, once thought to be extinct in England, is part of a long-running conservation project. The JBS Haldane Lecture recognises an individual for outstanding ability to communicate topical subjects in genetics research, widely interpreted, to an interested lay audience. This speaker will have a flair for conveying the relevance and excitement of recent advances in genetics in an informative and engaging way.  This is a Theatre event, where the speaker and audience in the Theatre are joined by an online audience.
