Professor Christine Winterbourn, winner of the Royal Society of New Zealand 2011 Rutherford Medal, presents a lecture entitled 'Life with oxygen - a battle against free radicals'.

Professor Christine Winterbourn’s work on free radicals began when it was just becoming apparent that they are produced as part of normal metabolism, when her team showed that radicals are generated from oxygen in red blood cells as it is transported around the body.

In her lecture, she will discuss the development of knowledge since that time on the sources and consequences of free radical production and on health problems that can arise when antioxidant defence is inadequate.
