Beyond the Human Genome Project: Medicine in the 21st Century

Walter A Rosenblith Lecture

In association with the Royal Society, the United States National Academy of Sciences has invited Harvard University and MIT researcher, Eric Lander - a world authority on genetics - to deliver the 2005 Rosenblith Lecture at the Royal Society. In light of recent advances in genomic science - many of which Dr Lander and his colleagues have been responsible for - he will discuss what the future holds for medicine and medical research in the 21st Century.

Dr Eric Lander, is a professor of biology at the Massachusetts Institute of technology, professor of systems biology at Harvard University and a member of the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research. Lander and his colleagues have developed many of the key tools and generated many of the key information resources for modern mammalian genomics. Their work includes mapping and sequencing of the human, mouse, and other genomes. Lander has won many honours and awards and is a sought-after lecturer to scientific and lay audiences about the medical and social implications of genetics. He was elected as a member of the National Academy of Sciences in 1997.

Organised by the United States National Academy of Sciences in association with the Royal Society.
