Penny lecture header

Our oldest tradition dates all the way back to when we were first founded. Listen to a lecture on an interesting and unusual topic, delivered by an expert, for just a penny. This lecture is in collaboration with Waterloo Festival.

The 21st century offers us unprecedented opportunities to transform ourselves physically. Changing how our bodies work—our physiology—is more difficult. Anaesthetist Dr Morley will discuss how individuals have sought to enhance themselves in the past. Drawing on his clinical work, and his research at St Thomas’ Hospital, he will also explore our future possibilities as ‘superhumans’.
