STEM lectures and demonstrations
Coronavirus (COVID 19)
Due to the challenges associated with the pandemic, we will continue to provide STEM support through our dedicated online platforms. Our first priority remains the safety and well-being of our staff, students and programme participants.
Enrolment for our programmes this Autumn will continue as usual but there will be no face to face or on-campus visits until it is deemed safe to do so. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but we will continue to do the best we can to safely support all of our programme participants. Please contact the programme manager / Imperial visitor if you have any questions or concerns and check the website for updated information.
For a full list of our current events see our Events summary.
Meet the Researcher Webinar Series
Title: Meet the Researcher – Nora from the National Heart and Lung Institute
Description: Nora works in the exciting field of cell and gene therapy, which involves delivering cells or DNA to patients to cure a range of diseases. Join Nora's talk to find out more about her work focusing on designing a therapy which genetically modifies cells of the immune system using lentiviruses.
Date: Wednesday 18 November

Title: Meet the Researcher – Mike from Mechanical Engineering
Description: Mike's research involves trying to improve our interpretation of creep crack growth in stainless steel used in high temperature applications such as nuclear power plants. Join Mike's talk to find out more about how putting this material under much higher load than it would be exposed to in operation affects its behaviour.
Date: Wednesday 25 November
