Friday 17 April 2020, 12.00pm to 12.40pm BST
On Friday 17 April, we were pleased to present our first webinar in our new Cambridge Conversations series. The Cambridge Conversations webinars provide you with the opportunity to listen, connect and engage with current Cambridge thinking, wherever you are. With the vast majority of our thousands of alumni in isolation or lockdown, each event allows our graduates digital access to leading academics and the chance to participate in a real-time Q&A session.
As the COVID-19 pandemic confronts the world, Cambridge experts are leading research into diagnosis and treatment of the virus itself, and examining the resulting challenges to our society — our economy, politics and educational system among many others.
The first Cambridge Conversations webinar featured Professor Ken Smith and Dr Nick Matheson, with facilitator Dr Chris Smith of the Naked Scientists. Together, they provided accurate scientific information as an antidote to the speculation and misinformation rampant on social media.
