Beth Sawyer brings science to the #BriSciFest2018

Beth and a team of volunteers from UCL, Reading and LSHTM took science to the streets of Brighton this weekend with a hands-on activity about the role of scientists in sport at #BriSciFest2018.

“To coincide with the Winter Olympics, we ran a stall about the science behind performance-enhancing drugs: what they are, their effects, side-effects and how they are detected. Over 200 people visited the stall and worked through the activities to catch the #dirtydopers. Thanks to the @BiochemSoc and @RoyalSocBio for funding and the opportunity to get involved in promoting molecular bioscience in this way.”
