Please note that Café Scientifique events will now be held in Baroosh Bar (4th floor, formerly B Bar) on Market Passage.

Café Scientifique is a place where anyone can come to discuss the science that is changing our lives with the people who are making the discoveries. Join us every month, when a different scientist will informally discuss their work and take questions from the floor.

This event is FREE of charge and a complimentary drink will be available.

Podcasts and vodcasts of our events are made in partnership with The Naked Scientists and can be found at http://www.thenakedscientists.com/HTML/podcasts/specials/cafe-scientifique/

The events are sponsored by the Medical Research Council.
