Annual Science Lecture

Lord May of Oxford
Lord May of Oxford, former chairman of the Museum's Trustees, giving the Annual Science Lecture.
28 November 2001

Our Annual Science Lecture has firmly established itself as a high profile platform where eminent scientists can discuss topical issues and stimulate public debate. Sponsored by Pfizer, the 2001 lecture was given in November by Lord May, the President of the Royal Society. His theme was Science, the Natural World and Public Opinion: Are We in Crisis? He discussed the effect of scientific advances on people's lives in both the developed and the developing worlds, the factors that affect decisions about our use of the natural world, and the role played by natural history museums.

We are delighted that Pfizer have agreed to sponsor the lecture for the next three years.
