Exploring the Future Human through Sport and Exercise Science.
Tue 1 December 2020 - 19:00 to 20:00

This online sports science taster event includes a live lecture from one of our inspirational research academics. Imagine a world where seemingly futuristic human enhancement is as common as a smart phone. Implanted chips to track health and behaviour, augmented limbs to improve strength or restore mobility, unrestricted access to cognitively enhancing drugs. What opportunities and challenges does human augmentation provide for society? Sport and exercise science provides the perfect basis to identify and understand how humans may be enhanced by science and technology. Dr Lex Mauger will discuss what the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences contributes to advancing understanding in this area. At the end of the lecture Dr Mauger will be joined by a current student and you will get the chance to ask questions about the course and life at Kent.
