IYPT 2019 Public Lecture: Wrexham

14 December 2019, Wrexham, United Kingdom

In celebration of the International Year of the Periodic Table (IYPT 2019), the Royal Society of Chemistry is organising a series of talks at science centres, universities and other venues across the UK and Republic of Ireland. Aimed at the public and established chemists alike, the IYPT Lectures will feature some of the most exciting science communicators in the field of chemistry, whose talks will bring the periodic table of elements to life.

About the lectures

Mendeleev’s periodic table of 63 elements, has now become118 elements, but which of these are essential for human life, and which can be used in the design of medicines? Are essential elements all coded for by the human genome? I will make an element-by-element journey through the periodic table, and identify elements essential for human life, and also non-essential elements, and even radionuclides, which can be used for therapy and diagnosis of disease. Understanding the periodic table of life will lead to major advances in the diagnosis and treatment of disease, and to improvements in health.

The Wrexham edition, 'How to Create Life in a Beaker' will be given twice by Dr Peter Sadler, University of Warwick, on 14/12/2019, at the John Troth Theatre, Wrexham Glyndŵr University Campus..
His two talks will start at 11:30 and 14:00. We encourage you to arrive 15 minutes before the advertised start time in order to get a seat. IYPT Lectures are generally timed to last for 1 hour.
Attendance at this event is free and does not require registration. Simply come along!
