We are hosting 2 evening events at Thirsty Cambridge on 14 and 16 May for the fabulous Pint of Science festival #pint18. This an event which some of our team were involved in in Cambridge during its first year of conception and have watched it expand into 300 cities around the world sharing the wonders of the lab with the general public in the comfort of their local pub.
Tonight’s event features talks from 3 great speakers:
New Finding! Mutations outside of genes contribute to severe neurodevelopmental disorders

Rheum with a view: Through the looking glass into rare joint diseases
and joints. In partnership with the NIHR BioResource Jagtar will establish a
national patient cohort that will allow us to look into the genetics of these
diseases and also carry out clinical trials. In this talk he will explore what rare
diseases can teach us about the common and the immense power of patient
cohorts and patient participation in research.
