Café Scientifique Manchester
Cafe Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. Meetings take place in cafes, bars, restaurants and even theatres, but always outside a traditional academic context.
Cafe Scientifique is a forum for debating science issues, not a shop window for science. We are committed to promoting public engagement with science and to making science accountable.

|Title||Body fat: more than just a lump of lard?|
|Speaker||Dr. Catherine Lawrence|
Body fat was for a long time thought to be no more than a site for the storage of excess calories obtained from our diet. This talk will focus on the current view that body fat is in fact an organ that can release many factors that affect our health in both a positive but also negative manner.
