UCL News Podcast (26/10/12) by UCL Sound published on 2012-10-26T09:36:40Z This week we hear from UCL PhD student Art Stavenka who recently appeared on the BBC programme Dragons Den with his start up business Old Bond London. And we also hear about a new art exhibition run by UCL’s Equiano Centre aims to uncover the diverse histories of the capital’s Black and Asian populations during the 1920s and 30s. In the news section we're joined by Sarah Cheney, from UCL’s Public Engagement Unit, to talk about their new event Focus on the Positive, which puts university funds into the hands of a live audience. We also catch up with some new UCL research into the benefits of personalised hand washing plans in hospitals. Finally, we round up some of the work that the UCL community has been doing to promote women in science, including a Wikipedia edit-a-thon and the Science Grrl Calendar 2013.
