2018 Barcroft Lecture

The Wellcome-Wolfson Institute for Experimental Medicine took great pleasure in hosting Professor Luke O’Neill from Trinity College Dublin as our guest speaker at the 2018 Barcroft Lecture on 7th November.  Following on from the tremendous success of last year’s talk by Professor Sir Ian Wilmut, leader of the research group behind the cloning of Dolly the Sheep, this year WWIEM cast its net around to find the brightest and best of Irish academia and were delighted when Professor O’Neill accepted our invitation.  His talk on ““Metabolic reprogramming in inflammation and innate immunity: prospects for new therapies” was followed by the award of the Barcroft Medal by Professor Jose Bengoechea, Director of WWIEM.
