Once again the Oxford Biomedical Research Centre (OxBRC) will be sponsoring Professor Russell Foster and his talk on The Rhythm of Life on Wednesday 8 June (2.30-3.30pm) at this year’s Times Cheltenham Science Festival.
Cheltenham Town Hall and Imperial Gardens will be transformed between 7-12 June into the ultimate venue for discovery, debate and hands-on fun – as the usually genteel setting springs to life with thousands of people taking part in hundreds of events and activities throughout the site.
2011 marks the tenth Cheltenham Science Festival, and the Festival gets in the party spirit with more eXplosive, eXciting and mind-eXpanding events than ever before with the festival theme of ‘X’. The theme has inspired a series of events exploring of all things X-related – from X-men to X chromosomes. The OxBRC will also be supporting the event by providing one of the speakers, Dr Mark Taylor, in a session with Professor George Ebers on Multiple Sclerosis.(Sunday 12 June 4-5pm). Professor Lionel Tarassenko, OXBRC research theme for Bioengineering, Innovation & Technology will be giving a talk (S74 on 10th June) about mobile health.
The immensely popular Discover Zone returns to the main hall with demonstrations and interactive exhibitions offering inspiration for all ages. And, for the first time, the Festival also welcomes an adult-only interactive space in Area 42. This will be the place to experience the very latest technology – some not yet on the market and on public display for the first time here.
