What happens when you mix stem cell science, sociology and filmmaking?

Dr Karen Jent (Sociologist at Cambridge University)
Dr Loriana Vitillo (Stem cell scientist at UCL)
Dish Life is an award-winning multidisciplinary film born at Cambridge University from the collaboration of a stem cell scientist, a sociologist and a filmmaker. At the core of the short film and their collaboration, are some intriguing questions: how can we show the public the daily labour of nurture and care for stem cells that is so critical for this research field? How can we show how science is done and how scientists feel about their work? After the screening, the producers will talk about making the film and what it means to work across disciplines and genres in science communication.

Losing your Self

Mica Clarke (PhD student and Pint of Science Manager)
Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) describes a group of progressive neurodegenerative diseases that can affect a number of cognitive domains: language, problem solving, planning and organising behaviours, and even social cognition - how we interact with those around us. The concept of the self fades with disease progression and many aspects of one’s own personality are lost, but what contributes to this? Join us to explore what can cause our sense of self to change.

Patching up patients and growing new limbs

Nazia Mehrban (Research Associate and Pint of Science Event Manager)
Roll up, roll up and see how we're using science, 3D printers and human cells to fix people (note: we're leaving out the eye of newt....it had a bitter aftertaste). 21st Century science brings fiction to life!
