Saturday 14 March: 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Mill Lane Lecture Rooms , Room 1, 8 Mill Lane, CB2 1RW

Your body defends itself against invaders (parasites, bacteria, viruses, cancers etc) all the time. How does it know what to attack? How does it do it? What diseases do you get when it goes wrong?

Amy MacQueen and Saad Idris, both immunologists from the Babraham Institute, make a dynamic presentation duo with their training in science and medicine.

Audience participation will be greatly encouraged.
