Science on the Hill

What is Science on the Hill?

Science on the Hill is a programme of events jointly organised by the School of Life Sciences and Warwick Medical School - two departments based out of our Gibbet Hill campus and supported by the Warwick Wellcome Quantitative Biomedical Programme. Each time several experts from the departments are invited to give short, fun, and informative talks around a theme. For example in the past we've looked at topics like antibiotic resistance and Covid-19.

Currently the events are being streamed online via the University of Warwick YouTube channel.

When is the next event?

We don't have any upcoming dates at the moment but we'll add details of our next event here when they're available. You can also subscribe to have information about upcoming events sent straight to your inbox so you never miss out.

How can I sign up to hear about more events in the future?

If you would like to receive emails about upcoming events being held by the university relating to our research please join our mailing list.

Can I watch back old events?

Our virtual events are available to watch back at a time to suit you.

New Scientists: New Research, Tuesday 30 March

Join us as we introduce you to some of our young scientists embarking on their careers in different areas of science and medicine. Find out what inspired them to go into science and the exciting work they are doing to help solve some of the current key scientific and medical challenges facing the world today.

Hosted by Professor Kevin Moffat with Warwick Medical School's Dr Erin Greaves and the School of Life Sciences' Dr Ellie Jameson and PhD student Emily Hill.

Covid-19 Diagnostics and Testing, Tuesday 10 Nov 2020

Join us for our first virtual science on the hill evening to discuss 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 will be introducing to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, how it's transmitted and how infection results in disease. Then Dr Chrystala Constantinidou will discuss how she can track the movement of the virus throughout a hospital by studying tiny changes in the genetic code. Dr Nicole Robb will also discuss her latest work on detecting the virus and the development of a 5 minute test for Covid-19. As usual there will be plenty of time for questions at the end.

You can also read about past events we ran in the series, although these events took place in person and were not recorded.
