19th April – The behaviour, biology, ecology, and conservation of Pelagic thresher sharks in the Philippines – Dr. Simon Oliver

This is a continuation of Simon’s original talk in November 2020. Pelagic sharks are poorly understood because of limitations inherent in studying them in situ.  Knowledge that pelagic thresher sharks (Alopias pelagicus) regularly visit specific locations in the Philippines presented an unique opportunity to study new aspects of their behaviour and biology, and promote their Read more about 19th April – The behaviour, biology, ecology, and conservation of Pelagic thresher sharks in the Philippines – Dr. Simon Oliver[…]

15th March – Splice up your life! RNA Splicing in Health and Disease – Prof Raymond O’Keefe

RNA splicing is an essential process in all human cells. RNA splicing takes bits of information from our genes and combines them together to make many different proteins required for correct organismal development and function. The RNA splicing process can be likened to a film editor splicing together the frames of a film; the frames Read more about 15th March – Splice up your life!
