Join us on March 1st 2019 for a very special day of biology where we really will discover the future. Andrew Steele will uncover the secret to extending lifespan, taking clues from the nematode worm and looking at the cutting edge of this futuristic field. Vivienne Parry will join us to provide a wide-ranging analysis of the 100,000 genomes project, it’s aims and potential for revolutionising healthcare and Sabina Alam will take us through the world of scientific publishing to find out how we decide what is fake news or sound science.  Clare Isacke will talk about the incredible strides that have been made in recent years in the fight against cancer, and will discuss the implications for precision medicine on society, and Greg Foot will recount his expedition to the summit of Everest, and the genetics behind why some struggle while others thrive when oxygen is scarce.

 

This is an unmissable and popular day, and we would advise booking places as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. For more information and to book tickets please visit https://www.thetrainingpartnership.org.uk/study-day/biology-in-action-1-03-2019/
