The Centre is again taking part in the MRC Festival of Medical Research in 2017, which is taking place from 17-25 June. During the festival, MRC funded units, centres and institutes will be showcasing and discussing their work through events and activities around the UK and beyond.

We are organising an event for the evening of Monday 19 June, to be held at the Deptford Lounge from 6-8pm.

Drop in to our evening of fun interactive activities and talks that will give you a chance to learn more about how air quality can affect your health. Find out how you could be breathing cleaner air, and learn how traffic noise and other pollutants might also be having an effect. We will also have several short talks:

  • Air Pollution and Health: Frank Kelly
  • Air pollution in London: Gary Fuller
  • Air pollution in Deptford – 1661 – 2017: Ian Mudway
  • Perspectives from China: Ben Barratt

The event is free to attend, and refreshments will be provided, but please register to let us know you are coming along! Register here: https://our-air-your-health.eventbrite.co.uk
