Autumn Open Lecture series

Our Autumn Open Lecture series kicks off on Wednesday 2 October, with guest speaker Till Roenneberg discussing one of the┬ácommon experiences of all humanity – sleep!

Professor Till Roenneberg

Professor Roenneberg, from the Institute of Medical Psychology at Ludwig-Maximillians University in Munich, Germany, will open our programme of lectures with a discussion of how sleep patterns have changed in modern life and the consequences for humankind. The lecture will be held at our Canterbury Campus from 6pm.
