UCL in the News: Mysteries solved in UCL lectures

17 January 2008

Simon Wroe, 'Camden New Journal' Ever wondered what the stars are made of, or how a frog becomes a prince when kissed by a princess? The answers to these and many other questions lie in the UCL's Darwin Lecture Theatre every Tuesday and Thursday throughout the spring term - and all it will cost you is your lunch hour.

The free 40-minute talks straddle a range of subjects from the pleasures of driving to an ode to the complex beauty of the Hepatitis B virus. …

Other lectures in the series include the ominous-sounding 'The Return of Syphilis', 'Reconstructing a Face after Cancer Surgery' and what promises to be a fascinating study of the creation of colours through nanotechnology.

The free Lunch Hour Lectures are held in the Darwin Lecture Theatre, UCL, Gower Street, WC! (entrance in Malet Place) from 1.15-1.55 Tuesdays and Thursdays until March 13. No Need to book. www.ucl.ac.uk/lhl
