How is Cambridge reimagining science to drive the discoveries that will transform the 21st century?

Cambridge has throughout its history addressed the big questions and pushed the boundaries of accepted thinking. As we go into an increasingly complex and challenging 21st century world, how is Cambridge bringing together the best minds across interdisciplinary borders to open up the new scientific and technological frontiers that will transform our society? We bring together leading researchers to ponder some of the biggest questions the world faces, and how we can address them.

In conversation with Professor Stephen Toope:

  • Professor Andy Parker, Head of Department, Professor of High Energy Physics, Fellow of Peterhouse
  • Dr Sarah Williams, Fellow in Physics; Director of Studies at Murray Edwards College
  • Dr Helena Knowles (St John’s 2015), Research Fellow in Physics
