This website celebrates an extraordinary scientist who was passionate about poetry and teaching. He was beyond his time, and we aim to bring to life his thoughts and ideas to inspire a younger generation.
Who created this?
The Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics at the University of Oxford with thanks to funding from the Wellcome Trust.
This resource was developed by Dr Lizzie Burns who took a new approach inspired by Sherrington’s curiosity – encouraging pupils to ask questions, to choose and develop their own ideas.
