IMG-Why-We-Die-SQUARE

Biologist Simon Watt

Death might not be certain, though taxes probably are.  In this lecture, featuring immortal jelly fish, the world’s slowest bacteria and the trip Darwin took to a séance, biologist Simon Watt delves into the surprising science behind why we die, and what the alternatives might be. Come satisfy your morbid curiosity.

This event is presented by Cultural Engagement as part of Arts & Science Festival 2014, a week-long celebration of ideas, research and collaboration across campus. For details of the full programme, visit: www.birmingham.ac.uk/artsandsciencefestival.
