Members of Basingstoke IVC, aIVC groups and our local science enthusiasts are invited to this extra event by Winchester Cafe Scientifique on a very topical subject by Andrew Seber. The subject of this evening’s talk is “What is immunity?”.
Regrettably, the public health situation still means it is likely to be some time before we can resume live meetings. We have decided to try out some online events, using Zoom, a popular and well tested platform for online meetings, https://www.zoom.us/ , which many of you may be familiar with by now.
If it is successful, we may continue to broadcast talks from the Discovery Centre so that if people prefer not to be in a room with a large number of people they can still join in.
What are antigens and antibodies? How do vaccines work? Andrew Seber covered many such questions in the molecular biology course he ran a while ago and this seems like a good time to go over the ground with Cafe Sci. The aim is to discuss immunity at cellular and molecular level to provide a general background to a topic of current interest.
Book your place on Eventbrite:
You will need the Zoom client installed on your computer, tablet or phone.
Short video on using Zoom here:
Only one ticket needed per screen. If you are sharing with someone, they don’t need a separate ticket.
We will open the meeting from 7pm so people can settle in, chat etc. There will be a break between talk and Q&A when people can chat etc. It’s not the same as live but closer than I thought
A recording will be available after the event on YouTube.
