Liverpool launches ‘meet the scientist’ series at World Museum

World Museum

The University of Liverpool is launching a series of interactive events aimed at visitors to the Liverpool World Museum to demonstrate the global impact of health research.

The autumn season of events begins on Saturday with ‘Fat Cats and Hot Dogs,’ exploring how germs can travel between animals and humans, including exhibits on how to keep pets and farm animals fit and healthy.

The event will be followed by ‘Body Works,’ which will show visitors how the human body works from the tiniest of cells, to the complex puzzle of the skeleton and muscles.
