With the majority of Cambridge alumni the world over in isolation or lockdown, we have launched a series of webinars enabling digital access to leading academics and the chance to participate in real-time Q&A sessions.
As the COVID-19 pandemic threatens the very foundations our society, Cambridge experts are leading research into the diagnosis and treatment of the virus itself, and examining the challenges to our economic, political and educational systems. Their informed insights, provided through the Cambridge Conversations series, are an antidote to the speculation and misinformation rampant on social media.
