Professor Juliet Gerrard will give a free public lecture ‘Promiscuous Proteins – Insights into Antibiotic Design, Nanodevices, Counter-Terrorism and Fluffy Croissants’ in Rotorua.

Most biological materials are assembled from proteins carrying out the day-to-day business of cells. We understand these molecules in great detail but have little understanding of how and why they gather into larger assemblies to carry out their individual functions. This lecture will explore how understanding these processes is opening up a wide range of applications to benefit society.

Professor Juliet Gerrard trained at Oxford University before moving to New Zealand in 1993 to lead an interdisciplinary research team, across biochemistry, chemistry, health, food science and biomaterial design as the Co-Director of the new Biomolecular Interaction Centre at the University of Canterbury. She is currently Chair of the Marsden Fund Council.

This lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, contact 04 470 5778 or email lectures@royalsociety.org.nz.
