Public Engagement!

Where will the genome revolution take medical science, and what does it mean for patients? What exactly should we be eating? Why do we continue to engage in unhealthy behaviour when we want to be healthy? Why are machine learning experts teaching computers to talk exactly like us? How ready are we for the future? Why we can’t believe what we read? As uncertainty continues to influence many aspects of our lives, the 2018 Cambridge Science Festival aims to ‘makes sense of the world’ we live in. The 24th annual two-week science extravaganza runs from 12 – 25 March and stages over 320 mostly free events, including talks, exhibitions, films, performances, and hands-on experiences for everyone of all ages. This year Cambridge Immunology have "Your immune army" exhibition and "Immunosensing- How do cells communicate?- Seek and destroy: the killer within" panel discussion.
