Research Showcase

Come to the Research Showcase and talk to Nottingham researchers about their work and its implications for our everyday lives.

Entries cover a wide variety of subjects from early cancer detection to brain-friendly Mediterranean diet and from how maths informs tissue engineering design to plants playing Pacman to survive.

Around 40 researchers will present posters explaining their research projects in a clear and creative way. The posters will be judged by members of the public and non-academic University staff.  Visitors are invited to attend the Showcase to find out more about the research undertaken at the University of Nottingham and vote for their favourite poster.

And don’t miss the keynote presentation by Helen Arney at 3pm in the Keighton Auditorium.

Keynote speaker biography

Presenter and geek songstress Helen Arney thought she’d left her scientific past behind after graduating in Physics from Imperial College, but it wasn’t long before she found herself writing quirky stand-up and songs inspired by her days in the lab.

Since then she’s performed everywhere from Hammersmith Apollo to CERN in Geneva, toured the UK in “Uncaged Monkeys” with Robin Ince and Brian Cox, and taken her own award-winning solo show “Voice of an Angle” to the Edinburgh Fringe. Helen frequently pops up on our television and airwaves, including BBC2 “Coast”, Comedy Central “Stewart Lee’s Alternative Comedy Experience”, BBC Radio 5Live “Bacon’s Theory” and as a lead presenter in “You Have Been Warned” on Discovery Channel. Helen also makes up one third of science comedy phenomenon Festival of the Spoken Nerd.
