Facets of Science: Three Short Lectures

Three eminent speakers will introduce us to their contrasting fields of science. Each speaker will provide a 20-minute ‘snapshot’ of their work before taking questions from the audience. The programme for the evening will be as follows:
7.30pm Professor Julian Ma - Hotung Chair of Molecular Immunology and Director of the Institute for Infection and Immunity at St George’s, University of London. Professor Ma will be discussing the development of plant biotechnology for production of medicines for human health. His team have been involved in the first ever clinical trial in humans of an HIV antibody produced in tobacco plants.
8.00pm Professor David Colling – Professor of Physics and E-Science, Imperial College. Professor Colling will be talking about the huge detectors and colossal computing power required at CERN, including the discovery of the Higgs boson and its role in our understanding of the Universe.
8.50pm Professor Peter O’Hare – Chair in Virology, Faculty of Medicine, Imperial College. Professor O’Hare’s topic; ‘Chemistry meets Biology; how Chemistry is revolutionising Life Sciences’, will illustrate the real-world overlap of the scientific disciplines and explain how the future of Virology will be shaped by the school students of todayThis is a fantastic opportunity for students and parents alike to explore the broader scientific landscape outside the curriculum. For more information about our speakers please go to the Events page of the School’s website.
We are expecting all A-level science students to attend, plus pupils in 4th and 5th years with particular strength in academic science, or simply curious about the broader world of science. The content of the evening will not be suitable for students in Year 3 and below, though interested parents of students in all years are welcome to attend independently.
