This week’s Stokes Society talk is actually four talks rolled into one, with members of Pembroke GP presenting their research and interests in science in what is going to be an exciting evening!

Talks will be 10-15 minutes long, with a few minutes following for questions. Our speakers are as follows:

Maya Hanspal: Pigments of My Imagination Introducing people to the weird and wonderful world of synaesthesia from an insider’s point of view.

Richard Heywood: Will we ever cure cancer? Despite huge amounts of research into new treatments for cancer, it is still one of the biggest killers worldwide. This talk will look at the challenges that face researchers, and whether we will be able to overcome these now and in the future.

Mark Nelson: The Next Century of Energy Covering the biggest families of energy technologies, their level of potential utilization, and the economic, social, and technology policies required to power our world with these sources.

Highlights including: cutting-edge information about fusion energy, the dark side of renewables, and the Great Number Problem that basically guarantees that we won’t fight climate change in any meaningful fashion.

Krishnaa Mahbubani: Synthetic Cell Transduction Agents (aka Applications of Phospholipid Membrane Interactions) For my current research, I am attempting to address the interaction with phospholipid membranes from a theoretical view point in order to identify the features used by synthetic transduction agents and how this extends into polymer-cell interactions.

Including tea, coffee, wine and nibbles, we hope to see you all there!

This talk is part of the Stokes Society, Pembroke College series.
