Public Engagement!

The 2017 Cambridge Science Festival welcomed everyone to explore and discuss science through talks, hands-on activities, performances, exhibitions and films. This year we are ‘getting personal’, looking at health and disease, our place in the world and our impact on the environment in which we live. The Cambridge Immunology "Your personal immune army" exhibition and "The good, the bad and the ugly: antibodies, microbes and immunity" panel discussion were a great success!

June 8th 2017 Immunology PhD and Postdoc Day

The idea behind this event is to give the PhD students and Postdoc’s an internal event where they can showcase their work in a non-competitive environment, giving them the chance to prepare for external conferences. With input from our Immunology network PhD and post-doc committee, a programme will put together with several short talks form many of our Cambridge researchers. There will be two keynote talks from PI’s (Early: Dr Milka Sarris, Established: Prof Gordon Dougan FRS). There will also be a keynote talk from a special guest.
