Event description

Description

Professor Lorch, Professor of Science Communication from Hull university, will be giving a talk about nature's nano machines which will cover protein structure and function, protein folding, disease, protein engineering the finish with peptide based signalling molecules and how they are being affected by ocean acidification.

The annual Daniell Lecture presents exciting contemporary developments in Chemistry to select London based A-level students and teachers. The lectures are delivered by internationally renowned scientists who are chosen, not only for their outstanding contribution to modern scientific knowledge, but also for their ability to communicate the essence of their research to a young audience.

Prior to Professor Lorch’s lecture, we will host tours to show prospective students King's College’s brand-new undergraduate teaching labs and instruments, with some simple experiments available for students to try. Tours will also be available of some of the leading research and analytical labs of King’s, where you can see the latest instruments used to catch both criminals and drug cheats involved in the Olympic Games and similar high profile sporting events.
