Public Lecture - Radiochemistry: Real Life CSI

Part of the 'Science Public Lecture Series' hosted by the University of Nottingham's Physics and Astronomy Department.

“Radiochemistry: Real Life CSI - the importance of understanding nuclear isotopes when advising UK emergency response organisations”
Dr Dominic Jones - Head of Radiation Protection -Atomic Weapons Establishment

ABSTRACT: 
How many of you think that one day you’ll be involved in the response to a major incident involving radiation? Whatever your scientific discipline or current specialism, Government and emergency responders organisations need scientists who understand material properties and instrumentation to provide advice to responders organisations or even respond themselves! Dr Dominic Jones talks you through some real life events and a hidden gem of a career that is available for anyone who is interested in the practical application of science.

6-7pm

B1, Physics Building, University Park, Nottingham (Near the QMC hospital)

No admission charge or booking required. Free onsite parking.

We will meet at 5.45 pm in the foyer. Following the lecture we can head to nearby pub the Rose & Crown on Derby road. Please note it is pay and display, but is deducted from the price of your first drink.

    This event was so well organised. Joanne gave really good directions to the University. The talk was fascinating and very informative. Everyone was really friendly and welcoming

    Hi not familiar with Nottingham. What is the best bus to take to the campus? Is it the 36 from Victoria Centre to the Nottingham University Main Campus North Entrance?

      If you coming from town it might be better getting the 34 outside wilkinsons near boots and getting off at the science department.
