The 2024 UK Blavatnik Awards Symposium

BAYS UK Symposium banner (1)

About the Symposium

Can we predict which tumours will metastasise from a genetic sequence? How does the 3D structure of RNA help plants survive in cold climates? What technologies will help us build a quantum internet in the future? How can we possibly detect life far away from our solar system? Can we leverage computers to design molecules for future therapeutics? How can we engineer bespoke enzymes for sustainable chemical solutions?

To find out the answers to these questions and more, please join us for this series of short, interactive lectures from the Laureates and Finalists of the 2024 Blavatnik Awards for Young Scientists in the United Kingdom.

This series of nine short lectures presents cutting-edge discoveries in Life Sciences, Physical Sciences & Engineering, and Chemical Sciences. The lectures are intended for science enthusiasts of all ages—from students to adults—so everyone can get a sneak peek of how UK scientists are sparking important innovations that will transform our future world.
