A celebration of the scientific career of Prof Gareth Leng

Prof leng

Gareth will retire in 2021 after 46 years in science, with 27 of those spent at the University of Edinburgh. Drinking, eating, love, sex – Gareth has unwoven the rainbow around all these targets of human (and other animal’s) attention, but always in a collaborative, insightful and scholarly way. This celebratory Festschrift will mark his long and fruitful career as an academic and researcher in neuroendocrinology – but not by means of a hagiographic meander, studded with ‘in-jokes’, through his scientific and (anti-)social exploits. On the contrary, this event is forward-looking; highlighting new developments, unsolved puzzles, oddities and controversies in this broad field of research. Join us at this event for another (we daren’t say final) opportunity to experience how Gareth, and the people he has worked with, has had an impact on our understanding of the unconscious neuronal and hormonal influences on the behaviours that help make us human.

This Festschrift will take place on Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th Sept 2020 at the historic St Cecilia’s Hall in Edinburgh. to register, please click here: Eventbrite.

Registration for the event closes on 30th June. There will be a celebratory dinner, venue to be confirmed. Dinner will cost around £35.00. If you wish to attend the dinner please register your interest on Eventbrite by March 30th and you will be contacted with further information and a link for payment nearer the event.
