Wondrous Innovation by Clare Hall Fellows (Open Cambridge event)

Enjoy a glimpse into three Cambridge researchers' daily work, and learn how their innovations and inventions are impacting the world today.

Three members of Clare Hall's Fellowship share incredible insights into their research and teaching methods, spanning human brain development in cerebral organoids; energy harvesting and sensing; and theoretical particle physics.

New technologies and approaches will be showcased, and there will be time for a Q&A.

Tuesday 13 September 2022, from 4-6pm in the Richard Eden Suite.


Speakers:

Dr Madeline Lancaster, whose lab focuses on human brain development using stem cells to generate brain organoids that allow modelling of human brain development in vitro, will discuss 'What makes the human brain special?'

Professor Sohini Kar-Narayan, who is working to develop 'self-powered' devices for patients to help improve their healthcare, will explore 'Novel sensors for precision orthopaedic surgery';

And Dr Bipasha Chakraborty, whose work investigates the physics of matter and forces at its most fundamental level, will focus on 'The quest for invisible new particles living in the vacuum'.


Ticketing is open to all and is free of charge; booking will launch on 8 August via Eventbrite. Please book early to avoid disappointment, and cancel your tickets should you be unable to attend.
