Public Events


Centre members take part in a number of public events every year. 

Watch the full performance of Research In Harmony, when five scientists from the WHG and The Jenner Institute collaborated with Oxford vocal group The Beatroots to sing about their research at the Oxford Science+Ideas Festival 2019.

You can learn more about the centre's work in Endometriosis through this explainer video by centre PhD student Magda Marečková.

You can listen to a podcast of our event at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History, called "The Heart and the Head", 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.
