Professor Pat Monaghan

What can birds tell us about how to age slowly?

This is a change to our advertised programme as the train operators strike on 16th March has severely impacted the travel of our speaker scheduled for the 15th March and so we have to postpone his talk to a later date.

Pat is the Regius Professor of Zoology at the University of Glasgow and has worked for many years on the biology of animal ageing, including species and lifestyle differences, and environmental effects. Pat particularly works with birds, and in this talk she will tell us about remarkable features of the biology of birds which makes them of great interest in understanding variation in the rate of ageing.

This lecture theatre is very atmospheric, as you can see in the picture above. It has all modern facilities but retains many original features in a beautifully refurbished church building. There are good public transport links, free parking very close by in the University grounds from 5pm, plus nice places to eat or drink before the lecture if you want to make a night of it.

The venue has a hearing loop which can be accessed via a hearing aid. The best reception for the loop can be achieved by audience members sitting in one of the front six rows.
