February 12th 2009 was the anniversary of Darwin's birth 200 years ago and was celebrated across the university and the world.


A new statue of him was unveiled at Christs' College. Professor Barry Keverne was one of four scientists invited by the BBC to discuss how Darwin has influenced their work. See the interview here.

As 2009 is also the 150 anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species there will be several more celebrations throughout the year including the Darwin Festival from 5th to 10th July 2009.
