You won’t hear any stuffy jargon or long-winded tangents here. Our researchers have just five minutes to tell you about their wonderful (and sometimes weird) research. The talks will be funny, moving and, dare we say it, educational?

In previous years, audiences have learned:
•    How VAR isn't just for football, it can also train surgeons
•    How to do a brain scan on a wriggly baby
•    Which member of Destiny's Child the lymphatic system would be

This is a relaxed, friendly event aimed at anyone with an interest in science and health. Even if that doesn't sound like you, you might be surprised!

Included with your ticket is one free drink* from the Studio Bar.
