Human bodies are complex structures with different types of cells, which together form tissues, which in turn are organised into systems of organs or apparatuses, which interact with each other.

Join us for an evening of talks exploring the science behind your body.

Interacting systems of the human body

Juliane Bjerkan (PhD Student, Nonlinear and Biomedical Physics, Lancaster University)
Samuel Barnes (PhD Student, Nonlinear and Biomedical Physics, Lancaster University)
Did you know that as you are reading these words your heart rate is fluctuating? When you breathe in your heart tends to beat quicker, and as you breathe out the heart rate slows down. This is an example of an interaction occurring within our bodies. Join Sam and Juliane as they explore various cycles and interactions within the human body focusing on the brain and the cardiovascular system. Learn how these interactions are affected by diseases and conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease and autism spectrum disorder.

Good cholesterol

Dr Sophie Lau (Postdoctoral Researcher at Lancaster University)
Have you ever thought about why “good cholesterol” is beneficial? How do we know when “good cholesterol” has gone bad? Cardiovascular diseases are a prominent health issue, which can be caused by “bad cholesterol” deposits in our arteries. “Good cholesterol” acts as a vehicle to transport “bad cholesterol” out of plaques in our arteries for recycling or removal from the body. Let’s explore the techniques used to understand the structure and function of “good cholesterol” and how this could benefit us.
