28 April - 13 May 2021
You are warmly invited to our ‘Exploring the Science of Life Webinar Series’, hosted by our School of Life Sciences. There has never been a more exciting time to study the science of biology, whether your interest is in human, animal or plant life.
We will be drawing experts to address problems ranging from how to exploit enzymes as new industrial catalysts and how they evolve to drive antibiotic resistance, to use microbes as agents to clean up pollution and keep us healthy, to stop cancer cells forming. We are working to develop better crops to feed us, understand the effects of climate change on ecosystems from the tropics to the arctic and how modern life affects the workings of the human genome.
Book your free place here to receive links of our virtual talks.
