Top scientist Dame Anne Glover speaks at The Royal Scots Club


Professor Dame Anne Glover is set to be the guest speaker at The Royal Scots Club, Edinburgh, on Monday 16 November as part of a regular series of Scottish Speaker Lunches.

During the after-lunch talk, Professor Glover will discuss her distinguished career in science and talk about her work, including how she has helped bring Scotland to the forefront the scientific community.

Professor Glover is a biologist and professor of molecular and cell biology at the University of Aberdeen. She was awarded a CBE in 2009 and made a Dame Commander of the order of the British Empire for her services to science in the Queen’s birthday honours list earlier this year.

She was the first ever Chief Scientific Advisor to the European Commission from 2012 to 2014, before the position was somewhat controversially abolished.

‘We are so lucky to be able to attract interesting speakers of the calibre of Professor Glover,’ says John Lloyd, chairman of the Club. ‘It is always especially interesting as they talk about themselves and how they came to be doing what they do at such a high level. Such personal insights have become a feature of our monthly lunches.’
