The University of Bristol Guest Lecture Series - Bangkok Prep

The University of Bristol Guest Lecture Series

The University of Bristol’s guest lecture series held on 13 March 2023 covered a range of fascinating topics, including Fintech, Molecular Science, and Economic Sustainability. The lectures were informative and engaging and provided students with an excellent opportunity to learn from experts in these fields and gain insight into the latest developments and research.

In the Fintech lecture, Dr. Pedio discussed how technology is revolutionising finance by granting wider access to financial markets and decentralising the way in which transactions are made. This has led to the democratisation of financial markets. However, the lecture also reviewed the benefits and emphasised the threats and challenges associated with this trend.

In the Molecular and Cellular Mechanisms of Learning and Memory lecture, Dr. Molnar introduced students to the structure of a synapse, the mechanisms of excitatory transmission in the central nervous system, and the roles of different glutamate receptors in synaptic plasticity. 

In the Economic Sustainability lecture, Dr. Islam discussed the relationship between economic growth, development, and their sustainability. Dr. Islam highlighted that while economic growth is considered to be the main driver of economic development through trickle-down effects, the conversion of growth into development is not always guaranteed. 

Overall, the lecture series provided students with an excellent opportunity to learn from experts in these fields and gain insight into the latest developments and research. The engaging and thought-provoking lectures are sure to inspire many students to pursue further study in these areas and will help them better understand what university lectures are like. The University of Bristol’s commitment to academic excellence and innovation was on full display in this guest lecture series, and it is sure to have a lasting impact on the students who attended.
