Trinity Fellow Shankar Balasubramanian has been knighted in the New Year Honours for his services to science and medicine. His research into the building blocks of life have revolutionised biology and have great potential for medicine.
2017 marks 700 years since the beginnings of King’s Hall, the earlier of the medieval institutions from which Trinity was formed more than 200 years later by Henry VIII.
Engaging 11 to 13 year-old girls with science, stipends for graduating female PhD students, greater teacher liaison, and TED-style talks by graduate students were some of the ideas discussed by Fellows, alumni and postgraduates to encourage more women to apply to Trinity as undergraduates and to continue in academia.
A creative photographer with experience of training is needed for an exciting arts project in 2017 that seeks to reveal what has inspired students, staff and Fellows at Trinity College.
Trinity Sub-Librarian, Sandy Paul, explains his fascination with Arthur Munby’s photographic collection of ‘unbecoming’ women. And why the female acrobats of mid Victorian England inspire him. This is his contribution to Pairings, a photography project designed to encapsulate the people, places or objects at Trinity that have inspired staff, students, Fellows and alumni.
