We are pleased to announce the formation of the Wolfson College Science Society, which aims to promote science, medicine, technology and engineering research in College.

The Society will host a series of lay-friendly talks, which will contribute to an understanding of how science and technology affect not only the way we live now, but perhaps more importantly, how they will affect our lives in the future.
