The Heart and the Head - an evening of storytelling, music, and science
Join researchers from the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics, Cancer Research UK, and the Oxford based folk band “James Bell and the Half Moon All Stars” for an afterhours event under the dinosaurs as they mix eclectic experiences, storytelling, and music around the theme of “The Heart and the Head”.

Researchers will be telling stories from their lives in science, with a live musical accompaniment – prepare to laugh, cringe, and sympathise as we find out what life can be like behind the lab bench. This unique event is not to be missed!
