See the world differently with our Discover Science series of public lectures

Loughborough University is inviting staff, students and members of the community to ‘discover science’ with a series of free public lectures. 

Speakers from the School of Science, the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineeringand the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences will showcase some of the diverse research and activity taking place within the University.

As one of the top 20 research-led universities in the country, Loughborough contributes new knowledge and understanding that helps businesses and industries to compete more effectively, shape public policy and help to improve the quality of people’s lives. 

The Discover Science lectures will take place on Wednesday evenings throughout May (6pm-7pm). They include:

Dr Sian Williams, subject outreach specialist (STEM) at Loughborough University, said: “These talks will provide a fascinating insight into the University’s ground-breaking research and will offer people the chance to engage with the academics involved. 

“We will explore the science behind claims that diet and exercise can improve brain function, the ways in which sport science has helped optimise performance for Paralympic athletes, how ultra-trace analysis of breath and skin are being used in the diagnosis of disease and stress, and how light can be used to solve measurement problems in anything from bras to bridges.”

The lectures will be held in the University’s Edward Herbert Building, lecture theatre J104.

Space is limited. Book your place in advance online.
