Schrödinger at 75—The Future of Biology (livestream)

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.

On 5 and 6 September 2018, the 75th anniversary of these lectures will be celebrated at Trinity College, Dublin 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 and the event will be livestreamed.

Big Bang Event at Newham College

On Thursday, 5 July 2018 members of the MBU visited Newham College, East London, to participate in the Big Bang Event.

The Big Bang events offer fun and free science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) activities for 10-18 year olds.

We took our fly exhibits and provided some hands-on microscopy and water-bath based experiments... and, in appreciation of the extraordinary heat, we were able to demonstrate changes in experimental design when, occasionally, things didn't go exactly to plan!

We had a great time.
