Churchill College Science Society

I’m Sam (second-year NatSci) and, along with some other JCR students, I’m setting up a science society for Churchill to organise and run talks/seminars/other events for anybody that wants to come along and find out about research by fellows and students in College and the University.

But before we start organising events, we need to have a full committee and we still have some positions vacant (including Vice-President!). If you’re at all interested in joining the committee, please send me an email (sjh282) or send me a message on Facebook (Sam Holland) and I can give you some more info and answer any questions.

Also if you have any ideas for events/would like to give a talk about your research at any point in the future, let me know as well!

Applications for committee positions to organise ‘Building Bridges in Medical Sciences 2021’ are now open!

BBMS is a student-run conference that aims to bring together scientists from different disciplines, career stages and countries to discuss the interdisciplinary approaches needed to tackle the global health challenges of the 21st century. 

BBMS-2021 will take place on March 6th 2021 and take the form of live-streamed panel discussions with invited speakers, with the potential for socially distanced events for students (rules permitting). Dame Sally Davies, Master of Trinity and former CMO, is our first confirmed speaker and has kindly agreed to chair a panel on the “lessons learned” one year after the (first) national lockdown!

So why not join the committee and help invite high-profile speakers, shape the schedule and help organise innovative networking events for students and researchers in the Medical Sciences? Due to the work of previous committees, the conferences have earned a reputation for their high-quality research talks, cross-disciplinary debates, and a welcoming and interactive atmosphere. 

No previous experience is required, just motivation, commitment and some fresh ideas! Please apply by filling out this form: 

If you have any questions about applying, please contact us at bbmscambridge@gmail.com
Applications close on Sunday 8th November 2020.

This is a great opportunity to invite your favourite scientist to Cambridge, join an exciting team, make industry contacts as well as add to your CV.
