Organised by:

SCI's Scotland Group

University of West Scotland

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis

In the modern world of science, 'mature' subjects often have a lower priority for governments and a low visibility amongst the public. In this context, this lecture will critically examine the relevance of Chemistry to past and contemporary society, posing questions about its modern-day impact and significance within the broader canvas of current scientific research.

The event will be preceded by the SCI Scotland Group's AGM, please click here for more details.

Lewis Flemming, recipient of an SCI funded Royal Society studentship, will give a preliminary talk on the development of CO2 sensors for breath analysis and monitoring during anesthesia.

A drinks reception will follow after the main lecture.
