Earlier this week, medics, medical researchers and guests were treated to a delightful evening at our eighth Zimmern Medical Lecture and Dinner.
This years’ speaker, Professor Sir Peter Lachmann, Emeritus Sheila Joan Smith Professor of Immunology, University of Cambridge, took guests on a journey through Cambridge Immunology since the Second World War, providing a personal view and concentrating particularly on the influence of Robin Coombs who started the first immunology laboratory in Cambridge.
Following this informative lecture, which made the audience laugh, reflect and review, guests were treated to a special dinner in our grandly decorated dining hall.
Since 2009 the Zimmern Medical Lecture and Dinner has been a key event in the Hughes Hall and wider Cambridge calendar, celebrating the College’s medical community and bringing the academic and working medical worlds of Cambridge together. Patron of the dinner is Dr Ron Zimmern, a Hughes Life Fellow, who in 2014 generously provided endowment to secure the event in perpetuity.
