Organised by SCI Cambridge & Great Eastern Region & RSC Mid-Anglia Section

This meeting will begin at 19:45 instead of 19:00 because of unforeseen parliamentary business.

Dr Julian Huppert will give a brief presentation (20min) on science and politics, and will then be happy to answer your questions. Unlike most MPs he has a science background, having been an active Research Fellow at the Cavendish Laboratory studying biophysics and bioinformatics of nucleic acids. His political interests include science policy, human rights, civil liberties, DNA databases, education, transport and climate change. At Westminster he chairs the Humanist Group, an all-party parliamentary group. He is also a keen cyclist.

This will be an excellent opportunity to come and meet the MP for Cambridge, and hear his views on the current state of science in the UK, and what the government is doing to help develop and protect it.

N.B. We hope that this meeting will not be delayed further!

Free admission. Open to non-members.
