Some of you have attended previous “Science on the Hill” sessions, and even taken advantage of free drinks! You’ll have to provide your own in this case, but if you follow the link below you can learn more and sign up. Here’s their note:

“The team here at ‘Science on the Hill’ are pleased to announce the return of our exciting programme of events, starting with a virtual discussion on Covid-19 Transmission and Testing. Whilst we cannot host this in person on the Gibbet Hill Campus, this will instead be a livestreamed and recorded event, held on Tuesday 10 November 2020, 18:00 – 19:00.

We will 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 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 a Q and A session at the end.

It would be great to see you online, please sign up at so we can send you over the link for the livestream.”
