<p>Running from the 20th-22nd of May the international, three-day Pint of Science festival will see thousands of scientists simultaneously bringing their research out of the lab to share with the public in over 300 cities across 24 countries. Founded seven years ago by two UK researchers, the festival brings a unique line up of talks, demonstrations and live experiments to the nation’s favourite locals. New for 2019 is the festival theme “What Next?” – we’ll be posing this critical question to researchers working across a huge range of scientific disciplines.</p>
All are welcome to attend this open talk by Sir Paul Nurse, President of the Royal Society and Nobel Laureate.
Three of the great ideas of biology are the gene theory; the theory of evolution by natural selection; and the proposal that the cell is the fundamental unit of all life.
When considering the question of 'what is life?' these ideas come together. The special way in which cells reproduce provides the conditions for natural selection to take place, allowing living organisms to evolve.
