University of Bristol Open Lecture Series in Dubai

10 November 2018, 4.00 PM - 10 November 2018, 6.00 PM

The Pullman Hotel, Cluster T, Jumeirah Lakes Towers, Dubai

A delegation of University of Bristol academics and staff will be in Dubai this November to raise the University’s profile and reputation, and speak to potential students about joining Bristol to study. As part of their visit, academic staff will host free open lectures and we warmly invite alumni to join for what promises to be informative and interactive sessions.

There will be a choice of four lectures to join on the day.

Dr Wael Kafineh, Department of Biomedical Sciences
Dr Kafineh's has particular interest in cell and molecular biology, along with research into how stem cell technology can improve medical treatments. His lecture will cover ways that stem cell regeneration can be utilised in the treatment of disease and trauma, from diabetes through to amputation. 

Dr Stephen Pearce, Department of Management, School of Business
Dr Pearce has extensive experience in industry. He is particularly interested in management and leadership, marketing and enterprise risk management. 

Professor Eirik Bjorge, Bristol Law School,
Professor Bjorge has an interest in Human Rights and EU Law. He often challenges students to determine which 'side' of a real case they believe to be correct, in areas that are not always clearly defined - thus highlighting the difficulties for many lawmakers when they are involved in arguing a case.

Dr Steve Bullock, Faculty of Engineering
Dr Bullock works on a wide range of projects across the faculty and with our Industrial partners. His lecture titled ' Robots pretending to be planes' highlights how our Robotics facility can help improve the performance of many dynamic systems. 

During the networking, you’ll be able to meet the staff, fellow alumni and also share your Bristol story with students considering following in your footpath.
