Sleepless in Paradise: How Travel and Vacation Affect Your Circadian Rhythms

Dr Aiste Steponenaite (Research Associate, Medway School of Pharmacy)
You have been looking forward to your dream vacation for months, but when you finally arrive at your destination, you find yourself feeling tired, irritable, and unable to sleep or eat well. This is the dreaded jet lag - when your body's natural circadian clock is disrupted by travel across time zones. During the talk, we will explore the science behind circadian rhythms and jet lag and discuss practical strategies for managing these challenges to make your travel experiences more enjoyable and restful.

Sun, Sand and Scrumptious Ice Cream

Professor Mike Bradley (Professor of Bulk and Particulate Technology)
What goes un-noticed by most people, yet without it we’d have no food, no energy, no transport and no manufactured goods? Particle technology! Your holiday would be nothing without particles, which pervade all our lives every day. In this short talk we will take a quick tour of the fun we all like to have with particles on holiday – even if you don’t know it!
