Research Tuesdays

Events for the curious

Our researchers are driven by the desire to understand. They work to uncover new knowledge and shed light on the world’s biggest challenges.

From tackling Meningococcal B to finding energy solutions for the future, our discoveries make a difference to people’s lives across the world.

At Research Tuesdays we share this knowledge, every month.

If you’re curious about the changing world, we invite you to join us. Our doors open every month.
