We are all star stuff
Have you ever thought where the chemical elements in your body were formed; or how they got to be in you? This talk will describe our latest understanding of the answers to such questions.

Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell

Jocelyn Bell-Burnell needs little introduction as the discoverer of the first pulsar in 1967. During her distinguished career she has been president of the Royal Astronomical Society, Institute of Physics and Royal Society of Edinburgh. In 2018, she was awarded the Breakthrough Prize in fundamental physics, following which she donated the entire £2.3 million prize money to help female, minority and refugee students become physics researchers. This Bell Burnell Graduate Scholarship Fund is administered by the Institute of Physics.
