Event description

Description

Hi,

Your immune system is your body’s version of the military: sworn to defend against all who threaten it, both foreign and domestic. If the immune system is not functioning as it should, it can result in disease, such as autoimmunity, allergy and cancer. However, there are ways to empower our body’s natural defence system against diseases. Join us at Science in the Pub to learn interesting facts about how the immune system works and how immunology can be applied to a range of areas in the biomedical sciences.


The team at SciPub, with the support of the Australian and New Zealand Society for Immunology, are pleased to present this event for the International Day of Immunology. SciPub Immunology: Past, Present and Future will be held on Friday 3rd May at the Rob Roy Hotel (106 Halifax Street in the city). This event kicks off at 6:00 pm and will finish by approx. 7:30 pm (doors will be open from 5:30 pm for those who wish to arrive early for seat).


The principal goal of SciPub is to make science engaging and accessible to the public. Each panel consists of three experts who deliver short, 10-15 minute presentations on their area of expertise and then discuss questions from the audience via a moderator. Panellists are selected primarily on their ability to effectively communicate science in an engaging and non-technical manner. SciPub is held in a pub so that scientists, aspiring scientists, and non-scientists can learn, discuss and think critically about hot topics in science.


We are pleased to announce our panellists for SciPub Immunology: Past, Present and Future are:

Prof Simon Barry – Senior Research Fellow, The Univeristy of Adelaide

Prof Claudine Bonder – Research Professor, University of South Australia

Ms Holly Groome – PhD Candidate, The University of Adelaide


Please take note. We endeavour to make your SciPub experience an enjoyable one. Although Eventbrite issues automated tickets, we do not check or collect tickets at the venue. The RSVP facility makes it easier for us to estimate numbers so that we can accommodate accordingly. RSVPing does not guarantee a seat. Doors are open from 5:30pm and due to the popularity of some past events, we would advise patrons to arrive early to avoid any disappointment. Thank you for your support. We hope to see you there!
