Our July highlights
04 Jul 2012
This month we're launching a series of short video clips featuring Oxford Martin School experts talking about their exciting research findings and aspirations. These brilliant minds are working to address global, complex and interconnected challenges. Can we create vaccines fast enough to deal with a future pandemic? Could advances in stem cell science mean the end of diseases of ageing as we know them? How can we harness the power of ideas to change the world for the better?
These are just some of the tough questions we have been trying to answer. We’ll be adding more videos over the coming weeks. So bookmark the link now.
Another film, 'Revolution in Oxford', was made by our founder, James Martin to highlight the exciting interdisciplinary work happening within the Oxford Martin School. Watch the film and find out more fascinating insights about the vision driving work at the Oxford Martin School.
In our featured blogs this month, James Martin Fellow Andrew Pontzen likens the peer review process to a "slow-motion game of tennis", and Head of Communications Alison Stibbe reflects on revolutionary thinking in light of Aung San Suu Kyi's recent visit to Oxford.
Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen will be giving a lecture on 11 July to launch our new Oxford Martin Programme on Resource Stewardship. You can find out more and register to attend here.
