Our May online webinar is entitled ‘How does chemistry come alive?’ with Professor Nick Lane of University College London. He will explore with us how the continuous reaction of hydrogen and carbon dioxide in the structured environment of hydrothermal vents could drive the beginnings of metabolism and genetics in protocells at the origin of life on Earth.

Nick previously talked to us about his fascinating work on bioenergetics, evolution and the origin of life in 2014. He is an evolutionary biochemist and writer in the Department of Genetics, Evolution and Environment at UCLondon. He was awarded the inaugural UCL Provost's Venture Research Prize for his research on evolutionary biochemistry and bioenergetics and his current work focuses on the origin of life, and the origin and evolution of eukaryotes. He was a founding member of the UCL Consortium for Mitochondrial Research, and leads the UCL Research Frontiers Origins of Life programme.
