September 2005’s 2nd Alchemist Cafe

“Science Promise Vs Science Reality”
We live in an age of sound-bytes and hype. Information must be presented in an attention-grabbing, easily digestible form. Scientists who want to be noticed in the public arena are as subject to these demands as everyone else and thus often, with or without the help of the media, make sweeping claims for their work – A new treatment for asthma, Gene discovery brings hope for millions, A revolution in domestic energy supply, GM crops can feed the world are all headlines that typify this apparoach. However, the reality is often very different: in this discussion we will be looking at the Science and the Spin and trying to uncover some of the truth behind the headlines.
Leading the discussion will be Dr John Bryant of Exeter University.
This was event as part of the BA Festival of Science and was organised in association with the Society of Experimental Biology and the Biosciences Federation
Prof. John Bryant of the University of Exeter
