King's at New Scientist Live 2017
Visitors to this year’s New Scientist Live Exhibition can look forward to an engaging display of hands-on exhibits and lectures, to suit all ages and interests, from the Faculty of Life Sciences and Medicine.
Presenting six exhibits and three lectures - from 28 Sept to 01 Oct - the King’s team will take visitors on a scientific journey of discovery, where they can learn about the intricacies of adult-to-child transplant surgery from celebrated GSTT transplant surgeon and King's researcher Pankaj Chandak, how new fingerprinting techniques are being employed to tackle the illegal ivory trade, and what some congenital heart conditions actually look like.
Visitors wanting to prove their physical strength or pain tolerance can do so (humanely) by submitting to experimental protocols employed by our twin researchers, and environmental research colleagues will be on hand to demonstrate what most of us don’t know about air pollution.
For lecture goers, Frank Kelly will be speaking about how dirty the air we breathe actually is, Kevin Whelan will wax lyrical on how taking care of the bugs in your stomach could be key to maintaining your overall health, and Tim Hubbard will be describing how genomic sequencing has gone from a fantasy to a routine medical tool within two decades and asking what the next twenty years could have in store.
The Exhibition, now in its second year, takes place at London’s ExCel Centre from Thursday 28 September to Sunday 01 October. Visit us on stand 929. Click here for full details and to buy tickets. Use our discount code - EXHIBITOR10 - for 10% off.
