The past week has seen the first of a series of guest lectures organised by the University Guidance Team. Harrow Bengaluru’s students in Grades 11, 10 and 9 heard from Professor Jeremy Simpson, College Principal and Dean of Science at University College Dublin, Ireland’s leading global university.
The title of the Professor’s lecture was ‘One Jellyfish, Two Proteins, Three Nobel Prize Winners: The Story that Changed Biomedical Research Forever’, creating much intrigue amongst the Harrow students.
They subsequently learnt about how luminous deep sea creatures create light, how this science has allowed the creation of luminous rabbits and the value of this nanotechnology to human medicine. All in all, a thought provoking start to our semester 1 lecture series.
