Imperial/44: Spring 2018

In Issue 44, we explore the interesting things that performance does to our brains, take a look back at life at Imperial in the 1950s and 60s, and find out why intangible assets are having an impact on all aspects of economic life. Also in this issue, we learn how helical stents change lives with their inventor, Professor Colin Caro, and get to know the communities of microbes living in our lungs.

Our regular content includes an adventure in the science of fire with Professor Guillermo Rein and a behind-the-scenes look at the Indian Society's preparations for their upcoming theatrical spectacular, as well as some fiendishly tricky puzzles set by our staff and students.
