Clare Hall is planning an Open Cambridge event around the theme 'Wondrous Innovation', which will take place on the afternoon of 13 September this year.
Three members of Clare Hall's Fellowship will share insights into their research and teaching methods, spanning human brain development in cerebral organoids; energy harvesting and sensing; and theoretical particle physics. New technologies and approaches will be showcased, and there will be time for a Q&A.
Dr Madeline Lancaster, whose lab focuses on human brain development using stem cells to generate brain organoids that allow modelling of human brain development in vitro, will discuss 'What makes the human brain special?'; Professor Sohini Kar-Narayan, who is working to develop 'self-powered' devices for patients to help improve their healthcare, will explore 'Novel sensors for precision orthopaedic surgery'; and Dr Bipasha Chakraborty, whose work investigates the physics of matter and forces at its most fundamental level, will focus on 'The quest for invisible new particles living in the vacuum'.
This event will take place on the afternoon of 13 September, and everyone is welcome - especially those who have not visited the College before. Details on booking will be released once the Open Cambridge programme launches on 8 August 2022.
