We warmly invite you to attend our 2021 Irene Manton Lecture hosted by the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health, The University of Manchester and The Linnean Society of London.

The Society is the world’s oldest active biological society, founded in 1788, and the lecture is named after Irene Manton who was the first female president of the society, a British botanist who gained her PhD at The University of Manchester.

The online lecture celebrates the significant contribution made by women to the Natural Sciences. This year, Dr Kat Coyte, Presidential Fellow (Research), will highlight how we can combine mathematics, big data and simple experiments to understand, and perhaps even manipulate, our own microbial communities.

Title: ‘Worlds within our Guts’.
