It’s Pere’s round at Pint of Science

Last year’s event, the first to be held in Barcelona, saw Xavier Trepat and Laura Casares give hugely well-attended talks on “The forces that drive cancer cells” and “Cell, the force be with you” at the Café de les Delícies in Raval. Pint of Science, which was established by postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers at Imperial College in 2012, will take place over three days simultaneously in 12 countries: the UK, Ireland, France, Italy, the USA, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Austria, Germany, South Africa, and of course Spain, where Pint of Science is supported by FECYT and the Sociedad Española de Neurociencia (SENC). One of 21 Spanish cities taking part, Barcelona’s Pint of Science event has the support of the Associació Catalana de Comunicació Científica (ACCC), the Comunitat de Recerca Estratègica en Salut Mental (CORE Salut Mental), ISGlobal–CREAL, and the Fundació Catalana per a la Recerca i la Innovació (FCRi).
