26th Feb 201416:15AcademicLen McCluskey PUTTING HOPE BACK INTO BRITAIN - Trinity Politics Society On WEDNESDAY 26TH FEBRUARY: Trinity Politics Society is excited to
present Len McCluskey, General Secretary of Unite, the UK's biggest
union. The event will be live-streamed and journalists will be present.
Mr McCluskey will be using the talk to make a policy announcement, and
it promises to be a fascinating and controversial event.

He will talk on the topic of:

PUTTING HOPE BACK INTO BRITAIN

'With the economy still stalled and the country still depressed, Britain
needs to rediscover optimism about the future – both in terms of
policies that can give people a guarantee of jobs and homes, and a
vision of a better society. Len McCluskey will explain what both trade
unions and students can contribute to this.'

The event will take place in the Winstanley Lecture Theatre, Trinity
College. The talk will commence at 4:30, preceded by a free drinks
reception from 4:15. As usual, the event is free and all are welcome.

As usual the event is free and all are welcome, but the capacity of the
Winstanley Lecture Theatre is limited and admission will be on a first
come first served basis (Winstanley Lecture Theatre).

25th Feb 201417:00Guest SpeakerGenerating order from chaos: harnessing noise and heterogeneity in the evolution of robust developmental patterningProfessor Chris Thompson 25th Feb

Generating order from chaos: harnessing noise and heterogeneity in the evolution of robust developmental patterning

Embryonic development is a remarkable feat of biological reproducibility. This is despite the fact that the molecular processes that underlie developmental mechanisms are actually rather noisy, variable, or even stochastic. For many years, the prevailing idea has thus been that noise must be dampened. However, recent observations of simple microbial systems challenge this idea, and even suggest stochastic heterogeneity or noise in cell signalling and responses can be evolutionarily advantageous. Together, these findings have huge implications, because they raise the question of whether heterogeneity plays a role in cell fate choice and developmental patterning in higher organisms. In this talk I will describe our progress in understanding this question through the identification of 'lineage priming' genes and will discuss its implications for regenerative medicine.

23rd Feb 201410:00SocietiesThe Trinity Mathematical Society SymposiumThe Trinity Mathematical Society Symposium is running from 10:00 to 17:45
on Sunday 23rd February in the Winstanley Lecture Theatre. We have talks by
fellows and PhD students, ranging across all areas of mathematical
research. The event is free and open to all; no particular specialist
knowledge is assumed. There is no need to stay for the whole day - just
drop in on talks you find interesting.

17th Feb 201420:30Guest SpeakerTrinity Maths Society - Dr. Helen Mason (DAMTP): Our Active SunThe Sun should be at the peak of its activity cycle, but actually it has been rather feeble. Several solar space observatories have been watching the Sun over the past few years: SoHO, Stereo, Hinode, SDO and IRIS . We now have high spatial and spectral resolution images of the Sun, with a high cadence. This talk will review what we have learnt about the active Sun, in particular what we know (and don't yet know!) about solar active regions and flares, and how they might affect the Earth's environment (via space weather).

All talks are to be held in the Winstanley Lecture Theatre, Trinity College, and will begin at 8.30pm (Winstanley Lecture Theatre).

27th Jan 201420:30Guest SpeakerTrinity Maths Society - Prof. Raymond Goldstein (DAMTP): Synchronization of Cilia From unicellular green algae to the lining of our respiratory systems are found hair-like appendages, known as cilia, whose coordinated beating results in transport of fluid essential for life. For decades there has been speculation about the origins of the synchronization seen in nature, but it is only recently that theory and experiments (mostly carried out here in DAMTP ) have combined to provide quantitative analysis of this problem. This talk will describe the fascinating stochastic nonlinear dynamics underlying the synchronization problem.

All talks are to be held in the Winstanley Lecture Theatre, Trinity College, and will begin at 8.30pm.
(Winstanley Lecture Theatre).
