New Scientist LiveNew Scientist Live 20-23 September

This year Warwick is going back to New Scientist Live! at the ExCeL Centre in London. From the 20-23 September, researchers the School of Life Sciences will be diving down to a cellular level to explore how we can understand and manipulate cells to function better or differently. Come along for some fantastic hands-on activities including Virtual Reality and E.coli circuits.

Public Science Events

Close Encounters of the 3D Kind: An evening of Structural Biology - Tuesday 16 October
Join us at the School of Life Sciences for our first public science evening of the 2018/19 academic year. This evening will be an exciting introduction into the world of Structural Biology and how scientists here at Warwick are using key analytical tools to discover a multitude of new molecules, from bacterial membrane proteins to Clathrin – an important intracellular transport protein. Come along and explore the future of drug discovery and much more!

Sea IceUK scientists to join Arctic research ship 'drifting' past North Pole

UK scientists will join what could be the largest-scale Arctic research expedition ever planned when the German research ship RV Polarstern is deliberately lodged into sea ice to drift past the North Pole.

Research includes Dr Hendrik Schaefer from the School of Life Sciences.
