The Pint of Science festival 2014 will see some of world’s best scientific researchers travel to pubs across the UK to discuss their latest findings with you.

Attendees will have the chance to get face-to-face with the people involved in carrying out current research. You can listen to them talk, join in games and quizzes, or just enjoy a chat over a pint. Find out what’s really going on in cancer research, neuroscience, global warming, space missions and many more areas.

In this discussion Dr Nathan Davies (UCL) will be talking about the amazing range of jobs your liver performs and why we should try to look after it. He will be discussing the range of research performed in his department. Dr Jane Macnaughtan (UCL) is a doctor who treats liver failure patients as well as performing research. She will be telling us about studies which showed that treating liver disease patients with probiotics led to an improvement in their immune system function.
