Feed your curiosity at our daytime discussions. Drop in to hear local scientists in conversation about their latest experiments, life in the lab and why science matters to everyone, all in the space of your lunch hour. Bring your sarnies with you to eat while you listen.

Turner syndrome is a chromosome disorder that has significant physical health symptoms as well as a profound impact on the social and emotional wellbeing of the girls it affects. Come and hear more about Jeanne Wolstencroft’s work exploring the links between rare genetic disorders and mental health.
