What can the humble soap molecule teach us about the origins of life? Join Anna Wang, a researcher at UNSW Sydney's School of Chemistry, to learn about research on how simple building blocks including soap can self-assemble into primitive synthetic cells, and what this behaviour could mean for the origins of cell-based life on Earth and its potential to happen elsewhere in the universe.

This free event is part of Inspiring Australia's Talking Science library speaker series for Sydney Science Festival in National Science Week

Location:  Strathfield Library & Information Service, 65-67 Rochester St, Homebush, NSW 2140
