Diamond Light Source would like to invite you to a special Live Family Webinar on Viruses on Wednesday 15th April at 1:30pm. Everyone is welcome to tune in, but this webinar is especially aimed at school children aged 7+ and a more general audience (essentially anyone who isn’t a biochemist and wants to learn more about viruses!). A lot of information has been shared in the media in recent weeks about viruses and how they can be combatted. In this webinar we aim to give you a greater understanding of Diamond’s work on COVID-19 in an easy and accessible way, plus give you the opportunity to ask questions.
We will begin with a short talk on viruses in general, and SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes the disease COVID-19) specifically, and then you will be able to ask our scientists any questions you or your family may have. David Price and Amy Griffin from our Public Engagement team will also be on hand to answer any questions you have about Diamond itself.
Tune in on Wednesday via Zoom (please note: questions will be submitted via the ‘Q & A’ function and all attendees will be automatically muted on joining).
