As part of Disability History Month, KCL Biochemistry Society are inviting two guest speakers to talk about the research they do in the field of disability. They will discuss the inspirations for their work as well as the impact.

Speaker 1: Dr Wanda Diaz-Merced is an astronomer who lost her sight at the age of 20. But determined to continue her career in Physics, Dr Diaz-Merced became a pioneer in sonification – a technique for turning large data sets into audible sound. She will talk about her research in this area as well as her work in promoting inclusivity in Science.

Speaker 2: Professor Annalisa Pastore is a researcher in Structural and Molecular Biology at King’s College London. Her work focuses on the proteins found in neurodegenerative diseases with the aim of designing suitable therapeutic strategies. She will give us an insight into the research she does and the potential implications of her work.

There will be free pizza at the end of the event!
