A Trip Through a Carbon NanoZoo … And How The Natural Sciences Could Save Us, With Dr Ilija Rašović – Society for Natural Sciences

July 16 @ 10:30 - 11:30



In this taster lecture, we’ll take a look at the fascinating world of carbon nanomaterials and investigate their roles in potential solutions to some of the most pressing technological questions humanity faces.

How can we wean ourselves off dependency on fossil fuels? How can we diagnose and treat diseases that still cause suffering to millions?

The most complex questions require a fresh perspective, and in this interactive session we’ll explore just how that’s possible through study of the Natural Sciences.

Dr Ilija Rašović is a Lecturer at the University of Birmingham and a committee member of the newly formed Society for Natural Sciences, a national learned society that promotes interdisciplinary science education and research.
