Café Scientifique

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.

When: 6pm on the last Thursday of every month

Where: Grafton Arms, 27 Grafton Street, M13 9WU‌

Title How do body clocks time physiology and behaviour?
Speaker Professor Andrew Loudon

We now know that all cells and tissues of the body harbour local internal clocks. How are these clocks synchronised with each other and what are they doing? In this talk, I will address what we currently know of how the brain clock regulates timing systems throughout the body to control sleep and wake cycles and hormone rhythms.

Organisers: Deborah Talmi, Bo Yao
