Our most basic building blocks are on the atomic scale, and yet we know so little about the nanoscale, the world beyond what our eyes, and even microscopes, are able to see. But things do not need to be seen to be believed, with nanoscale science influencing more and more of our daily lives through the internet of things and medical treatment, to fundamental discoveries about what has made our universe the way that it is. Join us for a night of discovering what the nanoscale has to offer! 

Particle Physics - Where it all began...

Sam Gregson (Large Hadron Collider Physicist)
Sam's scientific journey really took off as a particle physicist, science communicator and all round resident anarchist at the University of Cambridge and the Large Hadron Collider Beauty (LHCb) experiment at CERN, Switzerland (thesis analysis).

Now he looks to bring the joys of science to everyone: young and old, rich and poor, scientific veteran or beginner...

Internet of Everything - From Molecules to the Universe

Ozgur Akan (Professor Electrical Engineering )
The internet of things is a fascinating, expanding field between the internet and devices. Even though the technology has been around for a long time, recent research is only now beginning to focus on the development of nanomaterial-based neuro-interfaces for next-generation computer-driven diagnosis and treatment for the nervous system.

A Closer Look at the Nanoscale

Sir Mark Welland (Professor Nanotechnology, Master at St Catherine's College)
Professor Sir Mark Welland was Chief Scientific Adviser to the UK Government
Ministry of Defence. He is currently Master of St Catharine’s College, and Head of Electrical Engineering and Director of the Nanoscience Centre at the University of Cambridge. Nanoscience can be used to adapt everything in our daily lives; from superhydrophobic structures to new therapeutics using gold nanoparticles for brain cancer. This talk will give a broad oveview about the potentials and the challenges of technologies on the nanoscale.
