'Under the Sea: How the discovery of new deep sea species is unlocking a whole world of therapeutics'

Presented by Dr Adrian Glover, Merit Researcher, Natural History Museum.

We are honoured to be welcoming Dr Adrian Glover as the OBN Christmas Lecturer this year, due to be delivered on 12 December at Somerville College in Oxford.

Dr Glover leads the Deep-Sea Systematics and Ecology Group at the Natural History Museum (NHM), London. They are an active research group dedicated to the highest-quality deep-ocean and polar research, with emphasis on molecular, systematic and ecological approaches to fundamental questions in biology.

During the lecture, Dr Glover will embark on an extraordinary journey into the depths of our planet's oceans, where hidden life forms are rewriting the script of medical science. Join us as we dive into the mysteries of the deep sea, exploring its breath-taking biodiversity and the potential it holds to revolutionise therapeutics. Our speaker, a distinguished expert in marine biology, will unveil recent uncovered wonders and showcase how this uncharted space is transforming the future of medicine.
