The third edition of Pint of Science QMUL takes place between Monday 23 and Wednesday 25 May.
The international, three-day Pint of Science festival will see thousands of scientists simultaneously standing up and talking about their research in the pubs of 100 cities across 12 countries around the world.
Pint of Science is run by volunteers and it is a non-profit organisation that aims to provide a platform to allow people to discuss research with the people who carry it out, in a fun, engaging and approachable way by hosting the talks in pubs.
The events are aimed at the public who have an interest in knowing what’s going on in science research, but who do not have a background in it. Hence, talks will be jargon-free.
The QMUL chapter of the festival brings a unique line-up of talks given by excellent QMUL scientists, so come join us to learn and discuss about gravitational waves, genomic medicine, hip cells implant, psychology of romantic attraction… and much more!
Events will be held in four London pubs, every evening, over the three days of the festival, according to the theme:
BEAUTIFUL MIND (neurosciences, psychology, psychiatry) Events from 7pm at The Green, 29 Clerkenwell green, EC1R 0DU
ATOMS TO GALAXIES (physics, chemistry, maths) Events from 7pm at The Waterpoet, 9-11 Spitalfield, E1 6BX
OUR BODY (biology, medicine, health) Events from 7pm at The Crown Tavern, 43 Clerkenwell green, EC1R 0EG
TECH ME OUT (technology, engineering, computing) Events from 7pm at The Redchurch Brewery, 275-276 Poyser street, E2 9RF
