Science, Technology and Innovation Studies

Welcome Message

Science and technology pervade all aspects of modern life. Think of the impact of vaccines, mobile phones, jet travel or the internet on how we interact with one another and understand own place in society. How have theories of natural selection, advances in quantum physics, synthetic biology or new medical theories and technologies changed the way we see ourselves?

We seek to answer the big questions about how societies both influence and are influenced by science, medicine and technology.
