Event Details

Dr Bryan Fry holding a snake

With chilling tales of dangerous encounters with taipans, king cobras and arctic vipers, komodo dragons, vampire bats and an Antarctic giant octopus, Associate Professor Bryan Fry brings to life his work with venoms and discusses their potential uses for society.


Pushing beyond their importance in maintaining ecological balance, Bryan looks at the world’s most dangerous animals as rich sources of novel compounds for use in drug design and development.


Join him as he takes us on a journey through his passion (some would say obsession) for venoms, and a career that has seen him visit over 40 countries and work with some of the most unique creatures on the planet.
