Why everyone should care about enzymes in the ocean as much as I do
Date: 21st May 2018
Venue: Nicholson Teaching Studio, Room 101, Nicholson Building
If ever asked what your favourite ubiquitous marine phospho-enzyme was I am sure, like me, you would reply “alkaline phosphatase”. This charismatic metallo-enzyme has bewitched many a biogeochemical oceanographer over the years, and despite being perhaps the most well-studied and best loved phosphomonoesterase it still manages to shroud itself in some element of mystery. I have tirelessly (except during holidays and at Christmas) dedicated the last decade of my life to the study of this enigmatic enzyme group and last summer I had the great fortune of sailing the high seas in search of answers about its metal dependence. So if you’re interested come along on Monday (as Anna says third time lucky) and I will introduce my life long enzymatic companion and the work we have been doing here at Liverpool to disentangle the enigma.

Tides: The Science and Spirit of the Ocean
Date: 6th June 2018
Venue: Jane Herdman Building
In 2019 it will be 100 years since the opening of the Liverpool Tidal Institute and the beginning of the study of Ocean Science here at the University of Liverpool. The subsequent amalgamation of the Tidal Institute and the Liverpool Observatory (now the National Oceanography Centre) set the foundations for Liverpool as an internationally recognised place for research into tides and sea level. We begin our celebrations of this centenary with a presentation by author Jonathan White on his new book Tides.
