Life, Health and Chemical Sciences

< Back to Event

In this session you’ll find out how we teach practical science at the Open University. We will be demonstrating how you can use augmented reality apps, like the AR heart from SK299, to explore biological systems and giving you a taste of a labcast with a live chemistry experiment. We’ll also show you how the practical science in your qualification relates to current research in the School of Life, Health and Chemical Sciences.

I am an analytical scientist, and have spent all my research career monitoring biological systems. I originally trained as a chemist, and then did a PhD in Biochemical Engineering at University College London.

Lynda Cook

Senior lecturer. Passionate about how the human body performs under a range of conditions such as healthy individuals as well as when things don’t work as they should.

Martin Bootman

Martin Bootman is a Reader in Biomedicine and Director of Research in the School of Life, Health and Chemical Sciences. Since his undergraduate days Martin has been interested in the mechanisms underlying cellular signalling, and in particular how cells use calcium as a messenger.

Nick Chatterton

My name is Dr Nick Chatterton. I joined the OU in 2015 having previously taught chemistry at two other universities for 10 years. My three and a bit years at the OU have flown by.
