Packed Lunch: Epidemics by Numbers


Drop in

Wednesday 6 December 2017


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

How do you track an epidemic? What can maths tell us about outbreaks, and how can we use this knowledge to act quickly? Join mathematical modeller Adam Kucharski to hear what we’ve learned from the recent Ebola and Zika epidemics and how this analysis is shaping our response to disease outbreaks.


Adam Kucharski, Assistant Professor and Sir Henry Dale Wellcome Fellow, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

This event is FREE. First come, first seated. Please note that these events can get busy. Doors open 12.45.
