From climate change to plastic pollution, infant mortality to social inequality, the world is facing many huge challenges. At UCL we’re determined to solve them. We bring you #MadeAtUCL: The Podcast - a new series that brings to life our disruptive discoveries.
Episode one: Appearances - Each of these stories suggests that there is more than meets the eye and it's worth taking a second look. - Prof Mark Thomas on Cheddar Man: Britain's oldest skeleton had dark skin but that's not so surprising as you might think - Prof Ruth Morgan on Interpretation of Forensics: context influences how evidence is understood - Prof Dryden Goodwin on Linear: spending time looking, drawing and talking to London underground workers
On Episode 2 we talk about things that transfer from one place to another. Discover how traces of DNA can transfer onto things you’ve never touched, leading to wrongful convictions. Hear about future technology that will send information on light waves rather than radio waves, and learn how antiretroviral drugs prevent the transmission of HIV between partners. Join our host, Suzie McCarthy, as she explores these topics with Professor Ruth Morgan, Professor of Crime and Forensic Sciences in the Faculty of Engineering Sciences; Dr Paul Haigh, a visiting lecturer and a former senior research associate within the Communications and Information Systems Group; Professor Alison Rodger, Professor of Infectious Diseases and consultant at the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust, and Simon Collins, HIV positive treatment advocate at I-Base, an organisation that provides information about HIV treatment to HIV positive people and healthcare professionals. www.ucl.ac.uk/made-at-ucl
This episode is about giving things a new life. How do we take something that has served one use and giving it another? Learn about a diabetes drug that has helped with Parkinson’s, how old industrial sites became an artist’s laboratory to produce new paint colour, and turning used coffee grounds into sustainable fuel. Join our host, Suzie McCarthy, as she explores these topics with Tom Foltynie, Professor of Clinical and Movement Neurosciences; Onya McCausland, Senior Research Fellow at the Slade School of Fine Art; and Paul Hellier, Lecturer in Engines and Fuels in the Engineering Department.
