Science for the public

The School of Biosciences hosts a programme of monthly public science talks.  The aim is to introduce the broader local community to the exciting research carried out at the Sutton Bonington Campus in a manner accessible to lay audiences. The talks offer an opportunity to learn about topics as varied as behavioural science in dogs to biochemistry helping to preserve Viking ships. At the end of each talk there is opportunity to discuss the science with academics in an informal setting over a cup of tea or coffee. Suggestions for future topics are always welcomed.

Inaugural lectures

It is the tradition in Universities that newly appointed Professors are invited to give an inaugural lecture. The lecture represents the official recognition of their promotion to Professor, and the lecture itself provides an opportunity to showcase their work to the wider public. However this is a celebratory occasion when the new Professor can also share their achievements with colleagues, family and friends. Hence inaugural lectures are a valued tradition within Universities and the School of Biosciences continues to support this tradition by inviting all staff and students to attend.
