Public health advice tells us to cover up, stay out of the sun and wear high-factor sun cream but could this be detrimental to our health? While presenting the pros and cons of sunlight and the importance of lifestyle choices upon our health, this session, given by research scientists and clinicians, will enhance students’ understanding of how cells function, how diseases develop, the methods researchers use to study them and the steps involved in making new drugs and treatment strategies. It will be of interest to science students and especially to those considering careers in research, medicine or public health.
