Hydrogen Bonds and DNA: 70 year anniversary event

In 1947, a young postgraduate scientist, JD Creeth uncovered what would 6 years later pave the way for the double helix discovery by JD Watson and FHC Crick.

To commemorate the 70th anniversary of the discovery of the hydrogen bonds that hold DNA together, a special meeting is being held in the Trent Building on University Park, Nottingham - where the discovery was made.

This is a joint meeting of the Biochemical Society and the Royal Society of Chemistry. Speakers include Professor Turi King of the University of Leicester and Sir Shankar Balasubramanian FRS. There will also be a plaque unveiling by Mrs Pat Creeth.

There is a special rate of £11 for alumni for the meeting, which includes lunch. If you would like to attend please visit the Eventbrite booking page.

Please note spaces are limited.
