Speaker information

Professor Richard Flavell, Sterling Professor of Immunobiology; Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Yale School of Medicine, After earning bachelor’s and doctoral degrees in biochemistry at Hull, Flavell did postdoctoral work in the Netherlands and Switzerland and then joined the faculty of the University of Amsterdam. From the Netherlands, he moved to London, where he was head of the Laboratory of Gene Structure and Expression at the National Institute for Medical Research at Mill Hill. Then came an offer to join a commercial enterprise, the biotechnology startup Biogen, in Cambridge, Mass. When then-Yale Dean Leon E. Rosenberg, M.D., came looking for someone to head the medical school’s new program in immunobiology, he decided he was ready for a return to academia."

The Senior Scientist Lecture Series is a Yale-UCL Collaborative initiative which disseminates information about research and educational programs between Yale and UCL and promotes discussion and opportunities for collaboration.
