Episode 2 - #MadeAtUCL

Disruptive Discoveries: Transfer

On episode two we talk about things that transfer from one place to another. Discover how traces of DNA can transfer onto things you’ve never touched, leading to wrongful convictions. Hear about future technology that will send information on light waves rather than radio waves, and learn how antiretroviral drugs prevent the transmission of HIV between partners.

Join our host, Suzie McCarthy, as she explores these topics with Professor Ruth Morgan, Professor of Crime and Forensic Sciences in the Faculty of Engineering Sciences; Dr Paul Haigh, a visiting lecturer and a former senior research associate within the Communications and Information Systems Group; Professor Alison Rodger, Professor of Infectious Diseases and consultant at the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust, and Simon Collins, HIV positive treatment advocate at I-Base, an organisation that provides information about HIV treatment to HIV positive people and healthcare professionals.

'#MadeAtUCL Disruptive Discoveries' talks to UCL researchers answering life's big questions; from green infrastructure to artificial intelligence, space exploration to treating cancer.
