Can we improve crop photosynthesis to feed the world sustainably? A lecture by Prof Steve Long as well as tours, talks and activities mark SLCU's involvement in the upcoming Festival of Plants on 20 May.

SLCU is preparing for the annual Festival of Plants held in the Botanic Garden. Members of SLCU will give informal talks and tours, as well as running science activities in the pop-up science tent. Come build a plant, test your plant knowledge and spot some mutants.

Additionally, SLCU is pleased to be hosting a lecture by Professor Steve Long, FRS, exploring various approaches in food security and the changing environment. The talk will take place in the Sainsbury Laboratory Auditorium at 14:00. The lecture is free but ticketed – further information and tickets are available here.

Further information on the Festival of Plants can be found here. Normal garden admission charges apply. If you wish to attend the lecture by Professor Long, please use the 47 Bateman Street entrance to the Lab; there will be no direct entrance to the Lab from the Garden.
