Dear staff and students,
I am writing to invite you to the lecture: How the Fruitfly transformed Biomedical Science, by Professor Philip W Ingham, Vice Dean for Research and Toh Kian Chui Distinguished Professor at the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine in Singapore on Wednesday 5th November at 5.30pm.
Professor Ingham has been at the forefront of genetic and developmental biology research over the last three decades. This has included furthering our understanding of the genetic control of cell-cell signalling in the embryos of Drosophila and zebrafish and the roles “hedgehog” proteins play in human development and varieties of cancer. In 2007 he was elected an Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and, in 2014, was awarded the Waddington Medal by the British Society for Development Biology for outstanding research performance as well as services to the subject community.
