Finding out more about our research

Public Events

Heart and the HEad 2

Centre members take part in a number of public events every year. You can see some of the events we've taken part in on our 'Past Events' page.

You can listen to a podcast of our event at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History, called "The Head and the Heart", where researchers from the centre told stories from their lives in science, with a live musical accompaniment.

You can also watch our collaboration with FLUX Dance Theatre, performed at Oxfordshire Science Festival 2016, called 'Method in the Motion' and based on the work of the Julian Knight group, below

The Q&A after the performance can be seen on our vimeo page.

To find out about our upcoming events you can follow us on twitter, like our facebook page, or contact us directly.

Visiting the Centre

Unfortunately, we are unable to allow members of the public to visit our facilities. However, if you are a member of a community or social group, for example, we may be able to bring a workshop to you. Please contact us for more information.

Work Experience

The centre runs a week-long work experience programme during the summer. For more details, including dates and how to apply, please see our work experience page.
