In this ‘in-conversation’ style event, Professor Jim Al-Khalili speaks to geneticist, author, and BBC presenter Dr Adam Rutherford, about his work into the origins of quantum biology as a 21st century science and his ground-breaking work across science and science communication. 

This event is the Wilkins-Bernal-Medawar Medal and Lecture, which was awarded to Professor Jim Al-Khalili OBE FRS for his exceptional work in explaining complex ideas in modern physics in an approachable way, his contributions to televised histories of electricity and quantum physics, and his work ranging from very recent history of science to the history of Arabic science.
