I have some more details about events going on in and around Aberdeen for National Science and Engineering Week (12th to 21st March 2010). All are open to anyone (though you may have to register in advance for some events).
For a list of all the events in Aberdeen and a downloadable program, visit the Public Engagement with Science Unit at the University of Aberdeen – National Science and Engineering Week 2010.
The one most directly relevant to cancer is a talk by Dr Marianne Nicolson, a consultant medical oncologist with NHS Grampian. It is being held in the Suttie Centre at Foresterhill on Friday the 12th of March from 3-4 pm and is called “Quality MOdern Treatment on Study”. In fact, there are events running at the Suttie centre all day on Friday 12th March, you need to register and you can read more about the tours and talks on the Clinical Research Facilities Public Open Day website.
There are also shows on at the Satrosphere on Saturday the 20th of March “The secret life of the skeleton” and “Where did my dinner go” and a “Bring your own Brain Event” on the 18th of March at Kings Conference Centre in Old Aberdeen.
If you go to any of these events, please let me know what you think by leaving a comment below. Thanks.
