The power of our sex, fussy eaters and hamsters are just some of the subjects that will be discussed in a series of upcoming talks over the next eight months in Bradford

The Café Scientifique series are events open to the public to hear about, discuss and debate some of the most recent advances and discoveries in science and healthcare, and their importance to society.

A number of the events over the next few months will feature academics from the University of Bradford.

Each event is led by an academic, who will speak about a certain issue for around 30 minutes, with the aim of demystifying and explaining in simpler, more understandable terms, their ideas to the collective audience,  events are split between the Theatre in the Mill and the National Science and Media Museum in the city centre, always running on a Thursday from 6.30pm. They are all free with no need to book, and refreshments will be available.

Professor Marcus Rattray, head of the school of Pharmacy and Medical Sciences and professor of Pharmacology, welcomed the series of talks to the city.

He said: “It is great that Bradford now has a Café Scientifique series so that everyone can find out about the latest thinking in science over a cup of coffee or glass of wine.

The format of the events means that the talks are relatively short and accessible, with lots of time for discussion.”

The next event is being presented by Professor Alastair Goldman, In it, the Dean of the Faculty of Life Sciences will discuss  ‘How sex might help us fight cancer’.
