A swift way to learn more about the life-changing, life-saving, life sciences research taking place across the University of Birmingham campus and beyond.

In this exciting event, introduced by Provost and Vice-Principal of the University Professor Tim Jones, you will discover what Life Sciences are, how this research affects you, the local community and the rest of the world, and how you can get involved to support Birmingham’s pioneering research.

You will be taken on a journey of discovery, through six snappy presentations which will highlight the innovative research being undertaken by the University of Birmingham and its partners, including the NIHR SRMRC.

Among the speakers will be NIHR SRMRC experts Professor Liam Grover with his presentation ‘How can sugar be used to treat burns?’ and Dr Nick Loman, addressing the question ‘How can genome sequencing help us tackle Ebola and Zika?’
