About this Event

Schmidt Science Fellows are taking over the iconic Rhodes House in the centre of Oxford for inSPIREd: a special evening of engaging science talks and networking with international science guests.

Join us as we transform this historic venue, nestled amongst Oxford’s dreaming spires, into a high-tech arena of cutting edge, interdisciplinary science. Prepare to be inSPIREd by short, exciting, and provocative talks from our Fellows on:

  • Can soft materials revolutionise the very meaning of robotics?
  • Is the future of wearable electronics fully integrated e-skins?
  • Can a ground-breaking DNA scanner stop the illegal trade in endangered wildlife?
  • Will new insights into cancer cells overturn accepted thinking to give us new ways to beat drug-resistance?
  • Can a fusion of engineering, biology, and chemistry help us to harness the immune system to fight rare diseases?

Following the talks we invite all guests to continue the conversation with our Fellows, Chair of Academic Council, Prof Sir Keith Burnett FRS, Executive Director, Dr Megan Wheeler, and other international guests at a networking reception.

Schmidt Science Fellows, in partnership with the Rhodes Trust, aims to develop the next generation of science leaders to transcend disciplines, advance discovery, and solve the world’s most pressing problems.
