This year’s annual science festival brings leading scientists to your local pub to share the latest ideas and advances. Here, we’ve collated all the genomics events
Pint of Science is a global science festival that takes place in May each year, bringing researchers to your local pub to present their scientific discoveries. This year’s festival takes place on 14-16 May, in 32 cities across the UK.
You don’t need any prior knowledge of the topic. This is simply your chance to meet, hear from, and have a pint with the people responsible for the future of science.
We’ve combed through the list of this year’s events to pick out those that fit within the genomics theme. Some are more health related than others, but all should offer a fascinating glimpse of the latest ideas and advances.
You’ll find links to these genomics-related events below. Make sure you book your tickets sooner rather than later – at the time of writing, some events (not included below) were already sold out.
Of course, the festival is about much more than genomics – you’ll find events on neuroscience, astronomy, zoology and robotics, among many others. Find out more at the Pint of Science website.
