Diseases from yesterday year compared to todays modern world vary dramatically! Let us take you on a tour of how different diseases have become more common over time and how technology has helped us fight them!

Seeking Syphilis: The Mysterious Pox

Frances Osis (PhD Researcher, University of Glasgow)
The first European accounts of syphilis appear at the end of the 15th century, when it seemed to appear out of the blue and ravage the population. But where did syphilis come from, if it was even really a "new" disease? Explore the controversial history and genetics with Frances Osis to find out what we do - and don't - know.

From Melancholia to Depression: The Evolution of Mental Health

Dr. Alison McColl (Postdoctoral Researcher, University of Glasgow)
Dr. Alison McColl will explain how our understanding of mental health has evolved through time, from demonic possession to spiritual illness, melancholia to witchcraft and finally depression, as we know it today. We will explore treatment strategies from the days of bloodletting and starvation to modern therapies prescribed today.

Go With Your Gut

Hannah Baer (PhD Student, University of Glasgow)
Making the right treatment for patients rather than finding patients that fit the treatment. Easier said than done because you can’t always judge by its cover. Hannah Baer takes a closer look at gut inflammatory diseases that may seem the same on the surface but deep down are actually very different! Will you stomach it?
