Programme for Sept. 2021 – Jun. 2022

The Egenis Research Exchange (ERE) meets every fortnight to discuss developing work by scholars and students at Egenis, the Exeter Centre for the Study of the Life Sciences.

Discussions focus on matters of interest concerning the history, philosophy, and sociology of the life sciences, broadly conceived, and including the cognitive and biomedical domains. We aim to bring together scholars and students, who share in these interests, to showcase and develop their own work in a friendly environment.

Sessions are usually held on Monday every two weeks, from 2-3pm (term time, and excluding bank holidays). They have a hybrid format, taking place both in the Byrne House seminar room and online simultaneously. They are often followed by an Egenis seminar at 3:30pm.

Attendance and participation is open to all. Those wishing to attend, to submit work to be discussed, or with any other questions, should contact Elis Jones ( or Sabina Leonelli (
