  3. Science guest lecture: Max Kerr Winter on Biophysics: An introduction to current research

    Evening
    Course Date: Thu 28 Jan 2021 (and 1 other date)
    Location on this date: Online
    The variety of life on Earth has been studied extensively by biologists for centuries, and is now an active area of research for physicists as well. The field of biophysics aims to use the mathematical and computational tools of physics to understand complex living creatures. In this talk, Max Kerr Winter will discuss various ways in which physics and biology come together, from the forces that shape growing embryos, to photosynthesis in plants, and how this exciting field is shaping the future of AI and biotechnology.



    Max Kerr Winter is a theoretical biophysicist. He researches at the Francis Crick Institute, London, in collaboration with experimental biologists at the University of Cambridge.

  4. The search for the ultimate particle

    New Weekend
    Course Date: Sat 6 Feb 2021
    Location on this date: Online
    The idea of what we now call atoms is nearly 2,400 years old. This course explores how the concept of the ultimate particle has shaped physics since 400 BCE.

  6. Two very Russian elements: the discovery of Moscovium and Oganesson

    New Weekend
    Course Date: Sat 13 Mar 2021
    Location on this date: Online
    Moscovium and Oganesson are synthetic chemical elements created at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in Dubna, near Moscow, Oganesson in 2002 and Moscovium in 2003. We will explore their creation in this course, look at the motivation for creating new elements, the means by which these new elements are created, and the importance of these elements in increasing our understanding of the physical universe.
