Queen’s Stone on the Southbank will transform into a hub of scientific sharing, as world-leading researchers once again take to their soapboxes to present their research at this free, live event.

During the afternoon members of the public can engage with an inspirational line-up of esteemed scientists.

Dr Heidi Ma from ZSL Institute of Zoology will dig into work to protect the world’s largest amphibians while King’s College London’s Dr Anjali Chander will discuss the surprising connection between bacteria and mouth cancer. Meanwhile, Dr Anna Olerinyova will delve into harnessing our bodies’ ‘garbage disposal’ system to save lives, and Max Fisher from ViaNautis Bio will share insights on how their disabilities have strengthened their work growing millions of cells at a time to help develop life-changing medicines.

From exploring how nature continues to inspire scientists at the forefront of creating new materials, to unravelling the mysteries of the minuscule particles that make up the universe, the afternoon is set to inspire, captivate and amaze audiences from the banks of the Thames.

Established in 2011 by ZSL’s Institute of Zoology’s Professor Nathalie Pettorelli and UCL’s Professor Seirian Sumner, Soapbox Science strives to dismantle barriers to science by shining a spotlight on the vital contributions of women and non-binary people.
