On 9th September the Botnar Research Centre was open for Oxford Open Doors

Oxford Open Doors

Every year, Oxford Open Doors allows people from Oxford and beyond a chance to peek behind the scenes at places that they couldn’t normally visit. Earlier this month, the Botnar Research Centre opened its doors as part of the scheme. Visitors were able to look at a photographic exhibition of the history of NDORMS including a chance to see how it will develop in the future with the set of plans for Botnar 3 building. They could also speak to our team of volunteers from throughout the department about their research before (or after) going on a tour of the Botnar Labs.

Many thanks to Cushla Cooper, Gemma Greenall, Ngee Han Lim, Joanne MacDonald and Susan Wagland for giving up their time to talk to all our visitors about their research and to James Dunford who singlehandedly led all four tours of the laboratory.
