This flagged up on my science press release RSS feed and caught my eye. The University College London holds lunchtime talks and a couple have interested me – the following list is from their press release, although there is a longer list on their website – link below.

Reconstructing a face after cancer surgery – Probably not lunch-safe photos. Pass on that
Mr Nicholas Kalavrezos (University College Hospital)

The return of syphilis – Interested in a morbid sort of way, and I happen to be in the area on that day anyway.
Dr Patrick French (Mortimer Market Centre)
Thursday 24 January 2008

What can Venus, Mars and Titan tell us about Earth? – Space science, yay!
Professor Andrew Coates (UCL Mullard Space Science Laboratory)

The pleasures of driving – err, I think I’ll pass on that one.
Professor Iain Borden (UCL Bartlett School of Architecture)

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
