Here in Oxford we like to be different, so we have a two-week celebration of science: Oxfordshire Science Festival.
The one event I normally attend each year is the Dorothy Hodgkin Lecture. This year it's by Prof. Pamela J Bjorkman PhD, Max Delbruck Professor of Biology and Investigator, HMMI Caltech, USA. Her title is:
'Your mother's antibodies: How you get them and how we might improve them to combat HIV'
Oh, and of course I'll have to see the Science Fair at my children's school.
