national science week

The UK National Science and Engineering Week starts today, and as scientists can't count to 7, it lasts until March 15th. Lots of events just about everywhere, mostly organised locally by enthusiastic researchers, teachers, etc.

Here in Oxford we like to be different, so we have a two-week celebration of science: Oxfordshire Science Festival.

The one event I normally attend each year is the Dorothy Hodgkin Lecture. This year it's by Prof. Pamela J Bjorkman PhD, Max Delbruck Professor of Biology and Investigator, HMMI Caltech, USA. Her title is:
'Your mother's antibodies: How you get them and how we might improve them to combat HIV'

Oh, and of course I'll have to see the Science Fair at my children's school.
