2010 Greetings

January 11, 2010

Welcome to a new year and term in a wintry Oxford. This blog will present a record of CEMS events and where possible provide other news and information. For upcoming event s and other materials the primary resource remains the CEMS website at http://www.cems.ox.ac.uk/.

In this anniversary year of the foundation of the Royal Society, here at the right is snow on Beam Hall, Merton Street, where Thomas Willis maintained his medical researches and contacts with many members of the Oxford Experimental Philosophical Club. He married the sister of CEMS’s indirect benefactor, John Fell (see CEMS website). Willis will be featured in a forthcoming BBC TV series on the Royal Society.
