Nobel cell division

Nobel prizewinner Dr Tim Hunt will lecture at the University to celebrate National Science Week. He was made Nobel Laureate in medicine and physiology in 2001 for identifying cyclins proteins that govern quality control in cell generation.

Dr Hunt works for the Cancer Research UK laboratories near London and shares his Nobel with Sir Paul Nurse, due to receive an honorary degree from the University in July, and Leland Hartwell. Before his lecture, 'Protein synthesis and the control of cell division', Dr Hunt will open new teaching laboratories and meet staff and students in the school of biochemistry and molecular biology, which is to benefit from a 1.2m HEFCE redevelopment.

The lecture, sponsored by Leeds Philosophical & Literary Society, is at 5.30pm, in the Rupert Beckett lecture theatre on Wednesday 13 March. For details, contact Dr Steve Higgins, email
