Viruses fight back: The dirty tricks of MERS, SARS and other coronaviruses. Dr Ben Neuman, School of Biological Sciences, University of Reading will lead a discussion unravelling the secrets of viruses.
Café Scientifique talks start at 7:30 p.m. in Monroe's Rock Cafe (formerly known as the Déjà vu Bar & Eatery) and are followed by questions from the audience in the second half. Everyone is welcome to ask a question or make a comment; you don't need to be a scientist to enjoy the evening.
Cafe Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore and debate the latest ideas in science and technology.
