Pint of Science Freiburg
Pint of Science is an international festival which brings together scientists and the general publicto discuss about science in a very unusual environment: in a pub with a good pint of beer. For the first time, Freiburg joins the worldwide “Pint of Science” community, spread over 21 countries, and already involving seven cities around Germany. Over three days from May 14th to 16th, the Wirtshaus Goldener Sternen at Tennenbacher Platz in Freiburg will host the worldwide event, every evening from 6pm until 9pm. Tickets are limited!

Find here a brief overview:

Monday, 14th May 2018: Tech on me

The first evening is dedicated to technology and how it helps to understand or even fix the human body. Dr. Maria Asplund (University of Freiburg) will talk about her approach to accelerate the healing of skin wounds through electrical stimulation. Dr. Jörg Büscher (MPI of Immunobiology and Epigenetics, Freiburg) dives deep into sewage water system and is not only able to tell which drug spikes in the water systems days after a music festival. By using the same technology he usually dives deep into the cell and helps to understand our cellular metabolism. More

Tuesday, 15th May 2018: Cell food

On Tuesday, Dr. Nina Cabezas-Wallscheid, Prof. Edward Pearce and Dr. Andrew Pospisilik will explore the very basic mechanisms of the human body. The three researchers from the MPI of Immunobiology and Epigenetics will show how cutting-edge research answers some of the most urgent questions in science today. The audience will find out how lifestyle influences the function of stem cells, what fuels immune cells to fight against infections and if DNA can change through epigenetics, even after we were born.

Wednesday, 16th May 2018: Mind you head

On the final night, Prof. Marco Prinz (Uniklinik Freiburg) and Prof. Andreas Vlachos (University of Freiburg) will lead in a journey into the most complex machine in the world – the brain. The audience will discover with Marco Prinz how the brain protects itself from injury and explore with Andreas Vlachos the remarkable ability of the human brain to respond to stimuli with lasting adaptations that are relevant for essential brain functions, such as learning and memory.
