Upcoming Events

Dennis Crisp Memorial Lecture

Alumna Prof. Sandra Shumway (Marine Biology PhD, 1977) will deliver this year’s Dennis Crisp Memorial Lecture on Friday, 15th November 2019 at 6pm in Pontio PL5.

Prof. Crisp (1916-1990) developed Bangor University’s School of Ocean Sciences and this lecture series sees his PhD students return to their alma mater to present on topics that were influenced and inspired by him. Professor Shumway, Research Professor of Marine Sciences at the University of Connecticut and one of the world's leading authorities on shellfish biology, will share her memories of Prof. Crisp and will reflect on the academic journey she’s taken through his influence and present her current work in a lecture entitled “Molluscs in the New Millennium”.

We invite you to join us for a welcome drink at 5.30pm on Pontio Level 5 before the lecture where Sandy will be introduced by Professor John Turner, Head of School of Ocean Sciences. Afterwards, there will be drinks and a buffet and a chance to catch up with the University and your former classmates.

Please email to register your place.
