Eleventh Douglas Adams Memorial Lecture with Dr Adam Rutherford

Tuesday, 12 March, 2013 - 06:30 to 09:15

Creation: the origin and the future of life After four billion years of evolution, and a century of taking cells apart to find out how they work, we have a pretty robust understanding of DNA, evolution and the mechanics of life. Now, we are just beginning to put them back together to do two things: recreate the origin of life, and invent new lifeforms to kickstart a global industrial revolution. Dr Adam Rutherford is a scientist, writer and broadcaster. He completed his doctorate in genetics at University College London in 2002. Since then he has worked at the science journal Nature, as an editor and filmmaker. Adam is also a presenter for the BBC.
