For the third year in a row LSTM will be present at the Bluedot Festival(link is external) at Jodrell Bank Observatory in Cheshire, UK. The popular festival will be held from 18 to 21 July and fuses music, science and culture. Main theme this year is the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.
LSTM participates with its Club Tropicana(link is external), which will have family friendly demonstrations and games.
As in previous years Professor Mark Taylor will give a DotTalk on the Saturday in the Star Pavilion on ‘The Light and Dark Side of the Symbiont(link is external)’. LSTM’s Dr Tom Fletcher and Dr Shevin Jacob will do a double act on the Friday with a presentation on sepsis.
In addition, throughout the festival, a 15 metre long giant Cobra snake(link is external) puppet will roam the festival fields, combining art and theatre with the venom research that is being conducted at LSTM.
