This is the first exhibition in the Museum’s ambitious new Contemporary Science & Society series that will look at current multi-disciplinary research into organisms and the natural environment, all within the splendour of the Museum’s Victorian building.
- Professor Paul Smith, director of the Museum of Natural History
The exhibition features the research of Stuart Peirson in our Department. He will be giving a 20-minute talk on 16 May at 2.00pm and again on 6 June at 2.00pm, explaining photoreceptors and circadian rhythms and how light regulates physiology and behaviour.
Accompanying the exhibition will be a Biosense trail to encourage visitors to discover other specimens in the displays that are relevant to the show.
On 4 June there will be a symposium, with talks from the researchers whose work features in the exhibition.
Biosense runs 8 May to 24 August 2015. The full Museum programme is available on the website.
