Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Medicine Show
Recommended age: 11+
Roald Dahl, the beloved creator of children’s novels and adult short stories, was fascinated with medicine, especially neuroscience, and had a lasting impact on it.
Join his doctor, Tom Solomon, who uses Roald’s stories to explain how the body works, what can go wrong and how we can fix it. Tom describes how Roald invented a medical device and new treatment still used today.
You’ll also produce Gobblefunk and learn how to make your own marvellous medicine!
Tom Solomon is now Professor of Neurology and Director of the Institute of Infection and Global Health at the University of Liverpool. He is also a leading science communicator, the Running Mad Professor, winning a Guinness World Record for creating the world's biggest brain.
Tom will be signing his book, Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Medicine, after his talk.
We warmly invite everyone with an interest in neuroscience, pain, the brain and how it works, to come and join us for this free public event.
