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 - Atomic Weapons Establishment -Head of Radiation Protection
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.
B1, Physics Building, University Park, Nottingham (Near the QMC hospital)
