Online Seminar Series

Joe is organising an Online Seminar Series in NUI Galway’s School of Chemistry. The programme for this series of lectures is given below, and many of the talks will be open to the public. Links will be shared on the School’s Events page in the days before the lecture. Seminars are hosted on Microsoft Teams group “NUI Galway Chemistry Seminar Series”. With most normal activities in research labs shut down for a period of months due to the Coronavirus Lockdown, and conferences canceled for the summer, these seminars offer us a chance to engage with exciting research from around the world.

The weekly seminars take place on Fridays at 12 noon (Irish time), unless otherwise specified. Contact Joe directly for more details.

CÚRAM Poetry Slam

In June 2019, CÚRAM SFI Research Centre for Medical Devices invited its researchers to write some poetry in a workshop with Todd Robinson and recite these poems in public at ‘The Dark Horse’ pub in Athlone. This is the work of Team ‘Drug Delivery 1′ and comprises Liam Fitzgerald, Neville Murphy, Marita Dangol, Joseph Byrne, Miriam O’ Duill and Antonio Monterru.

This was a strange departure from normal scientific communication, and I think we learned a lot about how to use language (but I’m not sure the examples in the video were necessarily the best examples of that!)
