Crick Dinner

Saturday 8th June 2013, 7:30pm
Mill Hill School

Old Millhillian, Francis Crick (Ridgeway, 1930-34) pictured, was a molecular biologist, physicist, and neuroscientist. He was one of the discoverers of the structure of DNA in 1953, following which he, James D. Watson and Maurice Wilkins were jointly awarded the 1962 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine.

The inaugural Crick Dinner is to be the highlight of our celebration of Mill Hill’s most famous scientific alumnus and his contribution to scientific discovery. It will also highlight the investment the Mill Hill School Foundation is making in its science provision as demonstrated by the refurbishment of the Science Building at Mill Hill, a new building including state-of-the-art labs at Belmont, our Prep School, and the dedicated A Better Chance fund which supports a Sixth Former wanting to do medicine at university. Part of the ticket price will go towards this fund.

The main guest speaker at the dinner will be Professor Jim Smith FRS, Director of the National Institute for Medical Research. We will also be joined by other distinguished individuals with strong Crick connections.

Tickets are £70 per head. If you are interested in attending, please contact Karen Willetts on 020 8906 7865 or kw@millhill.org.uk or complete and return the reply form.

We look forward to seeing you then.
