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.

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)

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