Nottingham Central Library invites you to join us for our very first TEDx event. We are showing screenings of two existing talks and making them available to a wider audience. We will also be drawing on the experience of our local university and asking students from Nottingham University to facilitate interactive discussion after the talks.
Kamaljit Moirangthem is a second year Ph.D. student of Bioenergy. He is researching dual purpose wheat and creating food and fuel from the same crop. Kamaljit will be discussing with us how his past research experiences were driven by his curiosity and how it is now helping him in his studies to solve real world issues.
Tulsi Patel is a first year Ph.D. student of Life Sciences; Tulsi will be discussing DNA with us and the manipulation of this with regards to disease.
The talks will start at 10.30 with discussion afterwards and will be repeated at 12noon.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized (subject to certain rules and regulations).
