Recent advances in biotechnology coupled with a rapidly increasing understanding of the fundamental genetic causes of disease are not only identifying those at risk of disease but also revealing new drug targets.
The discovery of the so-called High Temperature Superconductors in 1987, which in bulk forms are able to conduct very high electrical currents and hence generate extremely high magnetic fields at liquid nitrogen temperatures, was heralded as the most significant scientific breakt Tough since the discovery of the transistor.
Happening this 28th of July, join us as we discover the importance of our environment and our community. This session features H.E. Dr Joachim Bergström, Ambassador of Sweden to Malaysia, sharing on the topic of “No Planet B – A Call to Climate Action”.
The duo lecture on Zero Tuberculosis: "Why eliminating tuberculosis matters for global health" by Professor Salmaan Keshavjee and "Insights from childhood tuberculosis" by Professor Mercedes Becerra (Harvard Medical School)
While one branch of physics works to understand the universe by breaking matter down to its fundamental constituents and their interactions (the quest for "the theory of everything"), in a complementary approach it is found that putting matter back together again can lead to a richness of novel physics which is more than simply the sum of the parts.
Disseminating news used to be managed exclusively by media hierarchies. The elites had control of the organisations and crucially the means of distribution. Readers and viewers were essentially a passive audience. But, now the digital revolution has changed all of that.
Quantum Mechanics is the most powerful and at the same time strangest theory in all of science. It underpins much of physics and chemistry, and without it we would not have developed modern electronics.
