Salters’ Lunchtime Lectures – the next one on Thursday 14 July

The Salters’ Institute is hosting an exciting new series of online lunchtime lectures. They aim to bring chemistry, and how we interact with it, to life in ways you have never imagined. Chemistry can be found everywhere, from the skincare we use, to the jewellery we wear, to modern medicine. These lectures aim to explore the hidden chemistry in our everyday lives.

Do you want to learn about the role chemistry plays in medicine?

Join us online on Thursday 14 July for our final lecture of this series with Physical chemist, Prof Sir David Klenerman. David, who received his BA and PhD degree from Cambridge University will be joining us to discuss his work on the leading next generation sequencing methodology, Solexa sequencing. Diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s can be detected using this method and help us gain an understanding on how these toxic aggregates form.

The lecture will run from 12:30 – 1:30 PM on Zoom, with an opportunity for the audience to take part in a live Q&A. Tickets are £5 plus a £1 booking fee.
