The Vice-Chancellor is pictured with Peter Cruikshank, Section Leader within CERN for the Technology Department for Engineering and Insulation Vacuum
Travelling with Professor Themis Bowcock and Professor Phil Allport from the Department of Physics, the Vice-Chancellor was invited to the centre in Switzerland to see the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), which allows scientists to study what the Universe looked like billionths of a second after it was created.
Physicists from the University have been involved in two of the four major LHC experiments at CERN, ATLAS and LHCb, and hope that the results will answer fundamental questions such as what dark matter and dark energy are and whether there are extra dimensions of space and time.

In a UK first, we've launched a new Research Technical Professional Career Pathway. Technical & research support staff are essential to UK research & innovation, and this scheme aims to improve the career pathways of colleagues in these roles.
A new digital tool will use climate data to help better predict and prepare for infectious disease outbreaks in the Horn of Africa.
Funded by @wellcometrust, the project is led by @LivUni_IVES with partners from Italy, Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda & Somalia.
