Café Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, you can explore the latest ideas in science and technology. Enjoy listening to a short talk before engaging in debate and discussion with our guest speaker.
We'll be joined by Dr Richard Paul on Tuesday 3 December from 7:30pm until 9:00pm (doors open at 6:30pm) There's no need to register, make sure you get there early though as seats fill up fast!
The secret information hidden in your hair
As we go about our daily lives our hair is recording evidence of what we consume and of the environments we are exposed to. It can record how much you drink, whether you smoke or take drugs, or live or work in an environment where drug abuse is prevalent. Join us to learn about the technology used to analyse hair, and how it can be used in criminal cases, to investigate drug facilitated crime, monitor alcohol consumption, and assess the exposure of prison guards to new psychoactive substances in UK prisons.
If you have any questions please do get in touch.
