Public lecture by Professor Peter Lawrence FRS and Professor Gines Morata
Professor Peter Lawrence FRS is a British developmental biologist at University of Cambridge and Professor Gines Morata is Research Professor at the Centro de Biología Molecular.
This lecture explored the developmental processes in Drosophila (fruit flies). Drosophila research has provided considerable insight into a range of biological processes from development to behaviour including cell proliferation, cell polarity, growth, regeneration, tumour formation and cancer. Many advances in our understanding of human development have come from this work and these studies might foster a better comprehension of human biology and disease.
This event is one of a series organised in conjunction with the Prince of Asturias Foundation, and offers a public preview of the “Transactions: Spain in the history of the Royal Society” exhibition.
