'Our monthly online lecture series showcases some of the most globally impactful research in the College of Life and Environmental Sciences. In each lecture, our world-class academics will share an area of their research relating to the UN Sustainable Development Goals for peace and prosperity for people and the planet.'

'The Laboratory is very conscious of its role in communicating the importance and excitement of contemporary physics and its cognate disciplines to young people and the general public. One of the key roles of the Educational Outreach Office is to stimulate interest and encourage wider participation in physics amongst 11-19 year olds. These initiatives are all the more important in the light of the needs of the country for more physics teachers and for a more scientifically literate population. Solving many of the challenges facing the world will rely heavily upon public appreciation of what science can do to better the world.'

'We are an Institute conducting world-class discovery research to understand life and benefit human health ... There’s something for everyone at the Crick.

'The University of Dundee is one of the leading universities in Europe for research in Life Sciences. We make fundamental discoveries on the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying health and disease in humans, animals, plants, parasites and bacteria and translate that knowledge to address global challenges ... Sharing and explaining our science has always been recognised as an integral part of the remit and responsibility of all our scientists. We are keen to communicate our passion for scientific research to members of the public, to people of all ages and from all educational backgrounds. We are eager to invite you into the world of discovery – a world that is primarily funded by you - and introduce you to how we work, what we hope to achieve and help you to understand how together we are changing lives.'
