This will be the second 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.

The Saunders Genetics Lectures celebrates the best contemporary research in Genetics today, with invited speakers being selected for their contribution to research which resonates with the activities of the Department of Genetics and across the School of Biological Sciences.

We are delighted to welcome Professor Dame Linda Partridge, Director of the Institute of Healthy Ageing at UCL and the founding director of the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing in Cologne, Germany as our speaker for the 2020 Saunders Lecture. The title of Linda’s talk is “Can we cure ageing?”. https://www.gen.cam.ac.uk/department/the-inaugural-saunders-genetics-lecture-2020
