BrisScience Bites Into a Toxic Topic

If learning about venomous snakes and lizards sounds like fang-tastic fun to you, you're going to love BrisScience's next event. On Monday 11th of May you're invited to a free lecture about the cold blooded killers, Venomous Reptiles and their Toxins.

Of the lecture, BrisScience says, "With chilling tales of dangerous encounters with taipans, king cobras and arctic vipers, komodo dragons, vampire bats and an Antarctic giant octopus, Associate Professor Bryan Fry brings to life his work with venoms and discusses their potential uses for society."

The Associate Professor will be going beyond our own mortal fears and concerns for ecology to look instead at how the compounds found in dangerous animals may in fact be used to design and develop drugs for treating disease.

Science buffs are welcome to join the Associate Professor as he discusses his amazing career exploring his passionate obsession with venoms at The Edge, located at the State Library of Queensland. You don't have to be an expert to attend, you just have to be interested in reptiles and their venoms. There will be light refreshments provided following the presentation, giving you the chance to discuss the topic with fellow enthusiasts and the Associate Professor.

While the event is free, you will need to register for your ticket in order to avoid missing out.
