Poster for September Tetricus seminar

Not a Salisbury Café Scientifique event but should be of interest to many: Professor Petra Oyston of DSTL will give the September Tetricus seminar on 28th at the DSTL Conservation Museum. The seminar will cover a brief history of plague, the pandemics and their impact, the lifestyle of the bug, its evolution from a stomach bug into the nasty we know today and also our current efforts to develop a vaccine.

The seminar starts and 12.30 and runs until 14.00; a light lunch will be provided but it is neccessary to RSPV by email to fiona@tetricus.co.uk or by calling 01980 556514; seats are limited so do get in touch sooner rather than later if interested.
