Earth Science: Active Earth � living fossil - W88

Friday 6th January 2017

14:00 - 15:30

Speakers

  1. Chris King - ESTA

Try a series of 'hands-on' activities aimed at upper primary pupils, to explore how organisms inherit their characteristics and become fossilised before investigating a range of landscape-forming and potentially hazardous Earth processes - in a practical, enquiry-based way. The range of interactive practical activities not only help you to develop your own understanding of the KS2 Earth science content � but involve you in 'off the shelf' activities that you could easily use in your classroom next week.

BATW: New horizons in stem cell research - T103

Friday 6th January 2017

14:15 - 15:00

Speakers

  1. Dr Julie Holder - Roslin Cell Sciences

Research into stem cell treatment has made headlines in recent years, often dubbed the 'miracle' cure to life-changing diseases. This talk discusses the exciting new pathways into cell therapies, and the resultantlife-changing regenerative medicines that can be produced. With the use of embryonic stem cells high on the ethical and political agendasof many countries, also explore the innovative alternatives to embryonic stem cell therapies.

Frontier Science: Inspired by nature - using weak bonds to make new materials - T106

Friday 6th January 2017

15:00 - 16:00

Speakers

  1. Professor Wayne Hayes - Department of Chemistry, University of Reading

This talk will describe how chemists are now able to mimic nature and use weak non-covalent interactions to generate new polymeric materials that are dynamic and able to heal themselves when subject to damage. Simple chemistries have been used to make short polymer chains that feature 'sticky' yet reversible chain ends and these allow infinite networks to form thus generating robust rubbery materials. These materials have been found to be biocompatible and also adhesive in nature leading to the next generation of surface coatings such as healable wound dressings or drug delivery systems.
