I know some of you have attended Warwick University’s ‘Science on the Hill’ in the past, and they have another event coming up. Details are below for anyone who’s interested.

The team here at ‘Science on the Hill’ are pleased to announce another free public science evening event: New Scientists: New Research.

We are still unable to host this in person on the Gibbet Hill Campus, so it will again be a livestreamed and recorded event, held on Tuesday 30th March 2021, 19:00 – 20:00.

Professor Kevin Moffat will host the hour long event, introducing you to three of our fantastic young researchers Dr Erin Greaves from Warwick Medical School and Dr Ellie Jameson and Emily Hill from the School of Life Sciences. They will be discussing how they became drawn into science as a career and tell you about the exciting and important research they are currently working on.  

Erin’s research focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis, while Ellie takes a microscopic look at phages and how they can play a role in fighting bacterial infections. Our youngest speaker Emily is making progress on potential treatments for Parkinson’s Disease. As usual there will be plenty of time for a Q&A session at the end.

It would be great if you could join us online, please register at https://warwick.ac.uk/wie/warwickengages/calendar/scienceonthehill/newscientistsnewresearch/  so we can send you over the link for the livestream.
