Discover Science Lectures

24 April 2015

This May, the School of Science invites staff, students and members of the public to Discover Science at Loughborough University.

Through a series of stimulating public lectures they will showcase some of the diverse research and activity that takes place within the University. The broad scope of scientific endeavour at Loughborough is represented in this eye-opening series by speakers from the School of Science, the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering and the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences.

Over the four talks you will discover the science behind claims that diet and exercise can improve brain function and combat dementia, the ways 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!

These talks will give you a fascinating insight into the ground-breaking research happening within the University and the chance to engage with the academics involved.

Prof Vicky Tolfrey from the PHC will be presenting as part of this lecture series on the 13th May 2015 from 6-7pm.
