Head to the bar for your Pint of Science

This year’s science festival covers all kinds of genomics-related topics, from jumping genes to microscopic worms. Find out what’s happening near you

Kicking off next week – 20-22 May – this year’s Pint of Science has even more to offer those interested in learning about fun and fascinating scientific discoveries.

No prior knowledge is needed – this is simply a chance to meet, listen to and enjoy a pint with some of the brilliant minds responsible for the future of science.

We’ve scoured the list of 600+ events for any that fit within the genomics theme. Some are more relevant to healthcare than others, but they should all provide an inspiring insight into the latest ideas and developments. You can see the list below, though don’t delay – some events are already selling out.

If you’d like to go beyond genomics, take a look at the Pint of Science website. From ‘Exploding stars and robots’ to ‘Music and the mind', there’s plenty to enlighten and entertain any audience.
