Speakers: Dr Beth Mortimer, Dept. of Zoology, Oxford University

National Science & Engineering Week

Lecture starts at 7.30pm. We finish by 9pm.

Spiders are superb engineers. They synthesise, spin and structure silk to enable almost all aspects of their biology. Commonly quoted for its strength, spider silk is less well known for its ability to transmit vibrational information through the web. These dual biological roles make silks multifunctional, with implications for ‘bio-inspired’ material or device design.
