Antibodies R Us

Another good evening for those into beer’n’science.

David Knight, Research Scientist at UCB Pharma, gave a talk on “Engineering antibodies: the science behind therapeutics” at Monroe’s Rock Cafe, one of a few Science-friendly pubs in Reading.

Having had a couple of pints at the local Wetherspoons, I was more than happy to answer the call for volunteers to demonstrate a Y-shaped antibody. Education thrives on participation.

David really needed to throw away his notes. His handling of questions after the break was much more natural than his prepared notes. Must be a confidence thing.
