Science Week at St Mary's Primary School, Hackney

On Friday, 26 January 2018, members of the MBU visited St Mary's Church of England Primary School in Hackney, to showcase the Unit's science using Lego models, games, and three different experiments using leaves and flies.

The event was run as a carousel during timed sessions, with John Walker introducing each session and engaging in well-informed discussions with our very young hosts.

Schrödinger at 75 - The Future of Biology - September 2018

In 1943, Erwin Schrödinger gave three public lectures entitled ‘What is Life?' at Trinity College Dublin.

Following their publication, these lectures had a tremendous influence on the development of molecular biology.

The 75th anniversary of these lectures will be celebrated with an unprecedented gathering of some of the most brilliant minds working in biology today, including six Nobel Laureates.

Mike Murphy is a member of the organising committee for this event, which will take place at Trinity College, Dublin on 5 and 6 September 2018.
