Potted Pathology pt 1


Potted Pathology: Inflamation
 is the first in a 3 part talk series focused on the 3 fundamental processes in disease development. Each part of the series has to be booked individually and can be enjoyed  as an individual talk or as part of the series if you wish to book all three. 

Have you ever wondered what is happening to your lungs when you have a cold, or what is going on in the painful joints of someone with arthritis? Maybe you have puzzled over the mystery of cancer and how it grows and spreads through the body. Pathology is the study of disease and seeks to understand the processes such as these which lead to disease. 

In this sequence of talks Professor Ken Donaldson, Senior Research Fellow in the Museum, will describe 3 essential underlying pathological processes that lead to disease- inflammation, infection and cancer development.

Inflammation is a vital process that defends against injury to the body. However, inappropriately activated the inflammatory response underlies many diseases such as arthritis and asthma.

This is the first in a series of 3 talks which will describe the fundamental aspects of pathology in an interesting and accessible way.

Please note: Each talk in the Potted Pathology series is separately ticketed.
