​Eager students thoroughly enjoy first Headmistress’ Lecture

There was a real buzz of excitement at St George’s College last night (26 April) as students gathered awaiting the arrival of Professor Dame Carol Robinson, the inaugural speaker at the College’s first ever Headmistress’ Lectures, a new termly initiative from Mrs Rachel Owens, the College’s Headmistress.

A number of students dedicated their evening to meeting the Professor and listening carefully to what she had to say about her world leading research in Chemistry as well as how she had risen from school girl to world respected expert in her field.

Professor Robinson is the Lee Professor of Chemistry at Oxford and was previously the first female Professor of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge. She is a Dame and a long time Fellow of the Royal Society. She is leading ground breaking research into the 3D structure of proteins and is renowned for pioneering the use of mass spectrometry as an analytical tool and for her ground breaking research into the 3D structure of proteins.

St George’s Weybridge is very grateful to Professor Dame Carol Robinson and looks forward to the next Headmistress’ Lecture in the Christmas Term, details of which will be publicised nearer the time.
