A pint of EMBL science

EMBL and Pint of Science join forces to entertain and educate local communities about scientific research

This May, scientists from Montreal to Moscow swapped the lab for the pub to discuss their research with a non-scientific audience at the Pint of Science festival. These international outreach events took place in 300 cities all around the world. In Cambridge, Hamburg, Heidelberg and Grenoble, EMBL scientists at all stages of their career shared their ideas and research with hundreds of audience members over a drink together.

With the events continuing to gather momentum, Pint of Science will be back in 2019 – hopefully with even more EMBL researchers involved.

Picture of the week

To study the effect of commonly used drugs on bacterial envelopes, EMBL scientists applied a biochemical assay using a colour reaction. The deeper the red, the stronger the disruptive effect of the drug.
