2 Creative Commons Genes, Hands, Nerves, and Brains Professor Dominic Furniss and Dr Akira Wiberg discuss the tremendous connection we have between the hand and the brain, focusing their talk on Dupuytren's Disease and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Dominic Furniss, Akira Wiberg 21 Jan 2019
3 New Year, New Me Are some people taking the 'New Year, New Me' concept a little too far these days? Claire Hill 09 Jan 2019
4 Modelling genes: the backwards and forwards of mathematical population genetics In this lecture Professor Alison Etheridge explores some of the simple mathematical caricatures that underpin our understanding of modern genetic data. Alison Etheridge 06 Jul 2016
5 Creative Commons Cancer predisposition and evolution Identifying genes that increase the risk of bowel or other cancers allows us to offer preventative measures, such as removing tumours at an early stage. A better understanding of how and why cancers grow also helps develop improved treatments. Ian Tomlinson 09 Feb 2015
