Diversity Lunch

Date: Friday, July 7th from 12:35 PM to 1:35 PM
Price: Free as a ticket add-on at registration but limited places are available

Join us for a special lunch celebrating diversity in the scientific community. This sit down meal will feature a special talk from our guest speaker, Dr. Shane Austin who will present the work of the SEB Awards Nomination Task Force. This task force aims to identify and recognise deserving members of the experimental biology community who may have been overlooked for awards.

The lunch will close with another keynote speaker. Professor Mark Blaxter, Programme Lead for the Tree of Life Programme at the Sanger Institute, will give a fascinating talk about their aspirations to sequence all life on earth, transforming our understanding of the natural world.

Anyone who attends the entire conference will have the opportunity to enter the Survivors Raffle. The raffle will take place as the finale to the Diversity Lunch. Prizes include free registration to next year's conference for your whole lab, free training packages, vouchers, and gifts from sponsors and supporters.



The Centenary conference will take place at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre The Exchange, 150 Morrison St, Edinburgh EH3 8EE
