The Leicester Institute for Advanced Studies

Virtual seminars

Meet associate members and fellows from the Leicester Institute for Advanced Studies (LIAS) and discover their unique passion for curiosity-driven research. Learn why interdisciplinary, open-ended research is more important than ever as the world seeks new solutions and breakthrough ideas. Through the seminar series, we spotlight the unique opportunities provided by LIAS and learn more about the research and experience of our members. 

Join us on the 14 May 2024, 12.30pm-1.30pm for a virtual 1-hour session.

In this seminar we feature LIAS Fellow Alumna Professor Linda Theron and LIAS Associate Member Dr Diane Levine. They discuss their research aiming to understand what helps Africa(n) children and young people cope well when life is hard, including their journey to success with a newly awarded Wellcome Trust Discovery grant.
