Researchers from the groups of Dr Laurence Wilson and Dr Pegine Walrad (Dept. of Biology), in collaboration with ceramics artist Tristan Lathey, staged a public outreach event on Heslington East Campus. The event welcomed around 100 members of the public, staff and students and introduced several topics in cutting edge biophysics research. Exhibits included a 3D movie in the immersive ‘3Sixty’ exhibition space, large-format scientific images and demonstrations of laser optics and drone technology, alongside abstract ceramic representations of some of the microscopic subjects. The speakers were introduced by Prof Brian Fulton - Dean of Sciences, who also chaired the discussions after the event. Artwork and exhibits produced for this event will be available for future outreach events and open days.
