News: Psychedelics for depression and bio-glass for re-growing cartilage – a small pilot study shows early promise for using the active compound in magic mushrooms to treat depression and a bouncy bio-glass that could help repair damaged knees.

Festival report – From trackers in Hyde Park to the impact of music in the operating theatre, researchers were out in force at the Imperial Festival in early May. But it’s not all straightforward science – the community also flexed their performing muscles with music, dance and much more. Our reporting squad was out and about to capture a flavour of it all.
