The Astbury Conversation 2020


Whether you are a researcher wanting to know about the latest developments, or you are simply interested in learning more about the hidden - but fascinating – world of macromolecules, the Astbury Conversation will give you an insight into life in molecular detail.

Event outline

• An academic symposium to include prestigious talks, selected presentations and poster sessions
• Plenary public lecture about the path to the highest accolade in science, a Nobel Prize, given by the Conversationalist.
• Public engagement event, showcasing some of the University’s research, followed by a wine reception.

The Conversation takes place over two days at the University of Leeds every two years, with the next event taking place on 23 and 24 March 2020.

Details of the 2020 speakers will appear here as and when they are confirmed. However, we are once again delighted to be welcoming a Nobel Prize winner as our keynote speaker. Professor Richard Henderson FMedSci, FRS became a Nobel Laureate in 2017, joining our past speakers:
