Search and Destory

Dr Louise Stephen (Post-Doctorate Researcher at CRUK Beatson Institute)
Our immune cells do a fantastic job of finding and destroying cells that shouldn’t be there. However, cancer has lots of tricks it uses to hide from our immune system and to prevent cell death. Louise is interested in understanding how our immune cells recognise and destroy cells so that we might make them better at recognising cancer.

Skinny Genes

Dr Luke Tweedy (Post-Doctorate Researcher at CRUK Beatson Institute)
One of the most complicated things in nature is making patterns from scratch. Human fingers and fingerprints, spots and stripes on big cats and even the spirals that form when amoebae socialise - biologists and mathematicians have tried to explain how all of these things develop with varying degrees of success. Luke will share a few theories on this, and on how our bodies decide what shape and which colour they will be.
