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.
