Science on the Hill is moving online!.
'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. Due to Covid-19 these events will now be held live, virtually, and you can join from the comfort of your home. We'll be keeping the interactive aspect and there'll be plenty of opportunity to ask questions to the speakers.
These interactive hour-long events will serve to showcase the research being performed at the Gibbet Hill campus by these two schools to the wider community.
The new virtual Science on the Hill events will still be free to attend and will take place between 18:00 - 19:00 on Tuesday evenings. You'll be sent a link to watch live on Youtube.

Our first virtual Science on the Hill evening discussed some of the science behind Covid-19 and the work that has been going on here at Warwick since the pandemic began. Professor Lawrence Young introduced the SARS-CoV-2 virus, how it's transmitted and how infection results in disease. Dr Nicole Robb discussed her latest work on detecting the virus and the development of a 5 minute test for Covid-19. Then Dr Chrystala Constantinidou discussed how she can track the movement of the virus throughout a hospital by studying tiny changes in the genetic code.
