Science on the Hill

'Science on the Hill' is a new exciting programme of public engagement events being jointly hosted by the School of Life Sciences and Warwick Medical School. Unfortunately due to the global outbreak of Covid-19 we have been forced to cancel this series of events until the next academic year. We apologise for any disappointment this may cause.

Impact

Innovative technologies are enabling researchers to extract and analyse DNA from environmental samples. Our approach is being used by conservation organisations to identify protected species and preserve biodiversity.
