Highlight Seminar Series
One of IMSE's flagship activities is our Highlight Seminar Series.
The Highlight Seminar Series brings eminent speakers from across the globe to Imperial to increase awareness of areas where molecular science and engineering can make a valuable contribution, and to promote exchanges with academic and industrial centres of excellence.
Our first Highlight Seminar speaker was Professor Emily Carter, Director of the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton University, who visited Imperial in September 2015, to deliver a talk titled 'Overcoming Grand Challenges in Energy'. Since then we have hosted a number of high-profile guests including Professor Andy Cooper FRS (University of Liverpool), Professor Paula Hammond (MIT), Professor Tom McLeish FRS (Durham University), Professor Clare Grey FRS (University of Cambridge) and Professor Lee Cronin (University of Glasgow).
