What do the impossible burger, greenhouse gases and bacteria have in common?

And what does all that have to do with how some plants make fertiliser from thin air? Join us at SLCU to explore the world of nitrogen fixation, a fascinating topic fundamental to plant development and food security. Try out scientific techniques, take a tour of the Lab and contribute to our research, which aims to reduce the need for external fertilisers and understand how plants grow.

At present this event is envisaged as taking place at the Sainsbury Lab. If COVID restrictions mean we cannot have people on site, we will create a closely equivalent online programme.
