Sir. Bodmer  assumed his current position at the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine as Head of the Cancer and Immunogenetics laboratory and more recently within the Department of Oncology in 1996.  After obtaining a PhD in Genetics from Cambridge University, he moved to Stanford University in California where he rose to the position of Professor. In 1970, he returned to the UK as the first Professor of Genetics at Oxford University. He subsequently became the Director of Research, and finally the Director General, of the Imperial Cancer Research Fund in London. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society and was knighted in 1986.

In the talk, he first introduced the inspiration and cultivation of his research tutor, Professor Sir Ronald Fisher of Cambridge University and Professor Joshua Lederberg of Harvard University. Professor Bodmer's talk caused a warm response from the audience. Professor WANG Qingqing once again thanked him for his constant concern for School of Basic Medical Sciences, ZJU. Professor Bodmer said that he was willing to continue to cooperate with Zhejiang University to promote contacts and exchanges between the two sides.
