The Howard Lecture is an annual lecture which celebrates world-leading early to mid-career academics working in the biophysical sciences.
We are very pleased to announce Dr Rivka Isaacson (King’s College London) as the 2021 Judith Howard Lecturer. The 2021 Prize Lecture will be held in-person as well as being broadcast on Zoom. Full details can be found on the BSI event page.
Dr Rivka Isaacson (King’s College London), 2021 Judith Howard Lecture, Friday November 12 (2-4 pm).
Professor Judith Howard CBE FRS joined Durham as a Professor of Crystallography in 1991 and became the first female head of a five-star chemistry department nationally. Judith has built instruments that allow scientists to apply techniques to prove theories experimentally and advance the field of X-ray crystallography. She developed low-temperature X-ray and neutron diffraction methods to explore electron density distributions, chemical bonding descriptors and magnetic properties in molecules more precisely.
Judith remains an active researcher and member of the BSI. This lecture celebrates, in her name, up-and-coming researchers in the biophysical sciences.
