The Curtis Lab hit the streets of Dublin in May 2018, to spread the good word to the masses about the importance of our body clock in health and disease.
First was PhD student George Timmons, who took part in the 30th PubHD event at J.T Pims Bar on Georges Street. He won the audience over about the importance of our body clocks in controlling the inflammatory response.
Second up was postdoc Mariana Cervantes, who contributed to the Pint of Science Festival at the Mercantile Bar on Dame Street. Mariana made the convincing case that the body clock is controlling our metabolism and how this is having a massive impact on our immune function.
Annie is delighted that her lab is so engaged in public outreach, but is becoming suspicious given all the talks are happening in great bars around the city!
