Exciting new discoveries about how our bodies work are being made by scientists every day. But what exactly goes on in the lab? And what do these discoveries mean for preventing, diagnosing and treating human disease? Join us for our new series of discussion events, Crick Chats, to find out.
Crick Chats are relaxed and friendly evening events that bring you face-to-face with scientists working at the frontline of medical research, including those moving to the Francis Crick Institute.
Tuberculosis is responsible for 1.5 million deaths worldwide every year and worryingly the rise of antibiotic resistance could push this figure up even higher. Come along to the latest Crick Chat to hear Luiz Pedro de Carvalho from the MRC's National Institute for Medical Research, and Alison Grant from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, discuss what is being done both in the lab and the clinic to tackle this huge challenge.
Hear about their work, ask a burning question, or just enjoy a chat; this is your chance to find out what’s really going on in the fight against drug-resistant TB.
No knowledge of science is required, there will be food and drink and all are welcome to attend.
When & Where
The Francis Crick Institute
The Francis Crick Institute is a biomedical discovery institute dedicated to understanding the scientific mechanisms of living things. Its work is helping to understand why disease develops and to find new ways to treat, diagnose and prevent illness such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections and neurodegenerative diseases.
By bringing together scientists from many disciplines, the Crick will have the scale, vision and expertise to tackle the most challenging scientific questions underpinning health and disease.
The Francis Crick Institute was founded by six of the UK's most successful scientific and academic organisations - the Medical Research Council (MRC), Cancer Research UK (CRUK), the Wellcome Trust, UCL (University College London), Imperial College London and King's College London.
