Bats & Disease: Untangling truth from myth

Join us for a lively lunchtime talk on bats and disease when we'll be untangling truths and busting myths and you'll have the opportunity to ask your burning questions to a panel of top experts in the field.

Our guest speakers will be sharing the science behind bats and coronaviruses, bats and disease in the UK, and we'll be covering some of the most common questions that we've had over the first two years of the project.

Rumour has it there may even be an appearance from a LIVE bat!
