What you’ll do

Over lunch, hear from a scientist about her research into 3D printing and whether it could revolutionise the healthcare of the future, from drug-delivery to smart prosthetics.

About your speaker

Anna Ploszajski is an award-winning engineer and materials scientist from University College London. In 2017, she was named Young Engineer of the Year by the Royal Academy of Engineering.

Where we’ll be

Our Packed Lunches are held in the Forum, which can seat up to 70 people, on Level 1. Follow the signs through the Medicine Now gallery.

To attend, just turn up on the day. Please remember, spaces are limited and it can get busy. Doors open at 12.45.

Part of Packed Lunch

At every Packed Lunch, you’ll get an opportunity to hear from a local scientist in conversation with a Wellcome facilitator about their current research. We then invite you to ask your own questions and share your thoughts. Sit back and listen or contribute – it’s up to you.


This event will have live speech-to-text transcription for visitors who are deaf, deafened and hard of hearing. If you would like to come along, email us at access@wellcomecollection.org or call 020 7611 2222.
