The Midlands Science Festival Presents An Evening of Drug Discovery & Maths Busking. This unique free event will provide an insight into the sometimes accidental and always fascinating world of drug discovery with Professor Luke O'Neill, Professor of Biochemistry at TCD. In a tour of the world of drug development covering everything from LSD to Viagra, this wonderful communicator of the wonders of science will make sure you think twice the next time you take a drug for granted. The evening will also include a performance by the multi-award winning Maths Buskers from the UK, who have combined a love of maths with busking and stand up comedy techniques to engage more people with maths. The Maths Buskers will be joined by new local Maths Buskers who have just completed their training for their debut performance. The event will start at 8pm and may be recorded so all guests are asked to arrive in time. A reception will be held in the foyer of the theatre from 7.30pm and the event will be chaired by Jonathan McCrea of Newstalk.
