Have you ever wondered what ECoS scientists are really doing behind closed doors? Next Tuesday, October 30th, 2018, is a great day to find out.
At 6.15 pm you can join Rob Ogden, Head of Conservation Genetics at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies and the Roslin Institute, Edinburgh, at the Gordon Aikman Lecture Theatre, 32 George Square, Edinburgh EH8 9LH.
From 6.30-8.00 pm he will speak about the role of wildlife forensics in conservation as part of the University of Edinburgh’s ‘Our Changing World’ series. His lecture will explore how cutting-edge science is helping to combat wildlife crime from poaching hot spots to retail outlets, while at the same time forcing us to re-examine how we use the concept of identity to categorise our natural world. And he’ll be answering any questions you may have on the talk afterwards. Just click here for more information about this free talk.
If you are after slightly more lighthearted science information, why not join squirrel leprosy PhD student Anna Schilling, and a bunch of other scientists from different fields, when they try their hand at explaining their projects through Stand-up comedy at the 47th Bright Club at the Stand? Doors open at 7:30 pm and the show starts at 8:30 pm. Tickets are available on the Stand’s website.
We would love to meet you there!
