Meetup CAFE SCI: “THE THREAT OF ANIMAL DISEASE TO HUMANS"
19:30 to 21:00
The Tea Bar, 19 London Street, Basingstoke RG21 7NT
Postcode/Map Ref:     RG21 7NT

Why not come along and find out what can be done to protect against the spread of disease from farm animals to humans at tonight's talk by Rebecca Philp  from The Pirbright Institute on “The threat of agricultural disease: transmission to humans and entry into the UK”

The Tea Bar will be open from 7:00pm so you can get yourself a drink and have a chat with other participants. The talk starts at 7.30pm.

Entry is free and open to everyone, but we do encourage you to buy a drinks, tea, coffee  and cakes from the bar to show your support for the The Tea Bar who sponsor the meeting by providing the venue. 

Summary:

Outbreaks of diseases such as influenza and tuberculosis are a constant issue in the UK but diseases such as Foot and mouth disease and African swine fever (which has zoonotic potential) are becoming more of a risk to the UK and Europe. 

Rebecca will examine the drivers of infectious disease and explains their threat to Europe with climate change, antibiotic use and migration helping their spread. 

Biography

Rebecca Philp graduated from the University of Exeter with a 1st in Biological and Medicinal Chemistry in 2013. She is now carrying out a PhD in the Immunogenetics Group, registered at the University of Glasgow, studying the antibody response of cattle and buffalo to foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV). FMDV is the most infectious disease agent known and affects all non-avian livestock species. Consequently it is the most economically important veterinary pathogen globally.

Protection against FMDV is predominantly mediated by antibodies but cattle and buffalo are differentially susceptible to disease. Buffalo are resistant to the development of foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) and are maintenance hosts causing infection in cattle, of which there is 100% morbidity and variable mortality. 

During her PhD project Rebecca is studying the genetics underlying the antibody repertoire between cattle and buffalo and examining how this influences the antibody repertoire after FMDV infection and vaccination.

FORMAT

The format of the evening is usually a talk of 30 to 40 minutes, followed by a short break so the audience can refill their cups and glasses, before questions and discussions about the talk. 

The discussions will aim to finish around 9.00pm, though everyone will be welcome to stay around and have a chat with the speaker afterwards ... and indulge in more of the Tea Bar's delicious cakes.

In this talk, Emma will take you on a whirlwind tour of gravitational waves from Einstein’s general theory of relativity to the gravitational wave observatory LIGO’s groundbreaking detection. She will be looking at the surprises this cataclysmic event unveiled. From the unanticipated discoveries made at the time of the detection, to how the black hole event horizon may cause gravitational waves to echo, and how space never forgets with gravitational wave memory.

Speaker:  Emma Osborne

VIABLES FILM CLUB - JANE AUSTIN: LOVE & FRIENDSHIP
19:15 to 22:00
Viables Community Centre
Postcode/Map Ref:     RG22 4BJ

In celebration of Jane Austin's work and and part of the Basingtsoke Festival we are showing the 2016 Film Love and Friendship.

This film is based on Jane Austen's comic gem 'Lady Susan'. Starring Kate Beckinsale, Chloë Sevigny, Tom Bennett, and Xavier Samuel. When she takes up temporary residence at her in-laws' estate Lady Susan Vernon is determined to be a matchmaker for her daughter Frederica -- and herself too, naturally.

Rotten Tomatoes: Love & Friendship finds director Whit Stillman bringing his talents to bear on a Jane Austen adaptation -- with a thoroughly delightful period drama as the result.

The Guardian: The most politely impolite film of the year.
