Pint of Science Festival takes a look at all things kidney by Sarah Williams

08 April 2019

For the third year in a row, we are delighted to be partnering with the Pint of Science Festival. This international science festival brings leading scientists and researchers to local pubs where they will present their latest discoveries, so people can learn about science over a pint.

In the UK some 40 cities will join this year’s festival. Our popular Kidney Research UK researchers feature in the #pint19 line-up in four cities – Bristol, Cambridge, Edinburgh and London from 20-22 May.
