In 1943, Erwin Schrödinger gave three public lectures entitled ‘What is Life?' at Trinity College Dublin.
Following their publication, these lectures had a tremendous influence on the development of molecular biology.
The 75th anniversary of these lectures will be celebrated with an unprecedented gathering of some of the most brilliant minds working in biology today, including six Nobel Laureates.
Mike Murphy is a member of the organising committee for this event, which will take place at Trinity College, Dublin on 5 and 6 September 2018.
