Inaugural Lecture Series

Inaugural lectures are important flagship events in the Faculty of Science.

Dates to be confirmed in accordance with Alert Level changes.

Our inaugural lectures are held by academic staff who have been newly appointed as professors, to celebrate the varied research we do across the faculty and inspire future scientists.

We host inaugural lectures throughout the academic year. They are free and open to everyone. These lectures are a great way of finding out more about the varied subjects our scientists are investigating and the applications of their research in society.

We will be hosting 15 inaugural lectures in 2022, four from professors who were appointed in 2021 but were unable to hold their lectures because of COVID-19 alert level requirements.

A list of our 2022 lectures is provided below, with additional details being provided as we confirm each lecture. For more details and to register or find out about recorded sessions, please click on the links in the table below.

You can also watch recordings of lectures from previous years on our past lectures webpage.
