Chemistry Webinars

We are delivering a series of short academic research lectures from the Chemistry Department. We would love your students to join us. By taking part in the lectures, we hope your students will develop their understanding of chemistry, find out how chemistry is helping to change the world and take advantage of the opportunity to ask our academics any questions they may have.

Brain Chemistry – A lecture from Professor Joe Sweeney, Head of Chemistry and Chair in Synthetic Chemistry, which will cover finding out how the shape and charge of small organic molecules is important in the brain. Register here for the Brain Chemistry Webinar

Biomaterials and Wound Healing – Non-healing wounds are a silent epidemic. They cost the NHS almost as much as heart disease and cancer. And yet we hardly hear about these wounds! Register here for the Biomaterials Webinar

An Atom’s Eye View – We spend a lot of our time in Chemistry learning about chemical structures – but how do we actually know these other than trusting what a textbook tells us? Register here for the Atom’s Eye View Webinar

Lancaster in the Media

Research has found that air pollution particles in young brains are linked to Alzheimer’s damage. Our Professor Barbara Maher, Lancaster Environment Centre, is part of the research team and has said “It is terrifying because, even in the infants, there is neuropathology in the brain stem”.

Scientists, engineers and technicians from the UK have embarked on a £26M project to help upgrade the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, on the French/Swiss border near Geneva. Our Professor Graeme Burt of the Department of Engineering and the Cockcroft Institute is managing the technical co-ordination of the project.
