Local talent: Global impact public invited to meet world-class researchers at Queen's
Date:9/12/2012

Members of the public are being invited to Queen's University at lunchtime on Thursday (13 September) to meet and hear from the people behind some of the biggest scientific, medical and technological breakthroughs of recent times.

In a special lunchtime research showcase in the University's Whitla Hall, entitled Local Talent, Global Impact, members of the public can discover how Queen's researchers are making an enormous impact around the globe.

Experts working on advances in fertility treatment, cancer care and sight-threatening diseases; cutting-edge developments in laser technology, wave energy and ultra-fast high speed wireless connections; and who use innovative methods of social data collection on demographic aging, poverty and social exclusion that help to shape policies, will all be on-hand to discuss their work.

The event marks the launch of the new publication, 'The DNA of Innovation: Volume 2', which includes case study profiles of many of these researchers, their cutting-edge work and its impact on society.
