British Science Week 2021

British Science Week 2021 has the theme of ‘Innovating for the Future’. With this in mind, we have chosen to celebrate the medical developments that came out of the Army Medical School at Netley in the mid to late 19th century, particularly in the field of infectious diseases. Not only did these tackle some of the most serious problems facing British forces stationed overseas at the time, but they also paved the way for many future developments. Our temporary exhibition in the Chapel is currently on hold, but you can explore the developments in infectious diseases in our online project instead.
