Larmor Society talk

Getting intimate with HIV

Professor Andrew Lever

Ever since it was first documented in 1981, HIV and its deadly consequence, AIDS, has been elusive of a cure, defying the efforts of medical research for more than 30 years. Professor Lever’s group in the Department of Medicine conducts research on how HIV packages its genetic material. Could this shed some light on how to hinder the processes that make HIV one of the most prolific killers known to man?

The Trinity College Science Society is pleased to welcome Prof. Peter Atkins on the 26th of November in the Old Combination Room at Trinity College.

Professor Peter Atkins’ talk, “Much Ado About Nothing,” will address the origins of the universe and the need for scientist to answer the crucial question of how something may arise from absolute nothing. Professor Peter Atkins believes this to be the most important question; that if answered makes science absolute and complete.
