CERN Technology Transfer Talk

Update:

Unfortunately Dr Dosanjh’s after school presentation has been cancelled. Apologies to all those girls who expressed an interest in attending. Nonetheless, we are planning to record her talk to Year 10 and will be posting a link to the video as soon as it’s available.

On Tuesday 14th November Dr Manjit Dosanjh from the nuclear research facility CERN will be visiting Loreto Grammar School to give a talk on the application of nuclear Physics to the treatment of cancer. This is a particularly timely visit given that one of the UK's first high-energy Proton Therapy Units is due to open at the Christie Hospital next year, after a £250 million investment programme.

The talk will be of particular interest to those wishing to study Medicine or medical Physics beyond school, in addition to any students with an interest in Physics and the exciting work that takes place at CERN.
