Scientists from the Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease will be at Liverpool’s World Museum
Scientists at the University of Liverpool will host a special exhibition for visitors to the Liverpool World Museum on human and animal health, evolution, and how the body ages.
Exhibits, hosted by scientists at the University’s Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease, include demonstrations of research on vision, nutrition and healthy living, and experiments to see at what age human muscles are the strongest.
Visitors to the museum will be able to compare their footprint to ancient ancestors using modern forensic techniques, as well as learn about the importance of diet to the health of pet animals.
Chairman of the Alcohol Health Alliance UK and University of Liverpool Professor, Sir Ian Gilmore, will also present a public lecture to discuss the growing concerns around alcohol and public health impacts.
Professor Malcolm Jackson, Head of the Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease, said: “An important part of our role as scientists and health professionals is to make sure that members of the public are aware of the advances we are making in areas such as arthritis, vision deterioration, and muscle diseases.
“We hope that our exhibit at the museum will encourage visitors to learn more about how the body works, how we have evolved, and the ways in which we can tackle some of the most challenging global health issues.”
The event is free, and takes places at Liverpool World Museum on Friday, 7th and Saturday 8th June. To register for the lecture by Professor Sir Ian Gilmore at 7.00pm on Friday, 7th June, please visit: www.liv.ac.uk/publiclecture
