On 6 March 2017, the NIHR Health Protection Research Unit in Gastrointestinal Infections, in collaboration with the NIHR Health Protection Research Unit in Emerging and Zoonotic Infections, celebrated the third in a series of evening 'Infectious Science in the Pub' events.

This exciting event, held at the Everyman Bistro in Liverpool, was a great opportunity to meet not only expert researchers, but also, members of the general public interested in understanding more about infections and global health.

More than 70 members of the public came to listen to the truly inspiring talks given by researchers from the University of Liverpool. The following topics were covered in this very enjoyable evening:

~ Prof Iturriza-Gomara, Miren - Rumbling guts
~ Dr Seth Barribeau - Sex, Disease, and Marvin Gaye
~ Margaux Mesle - Do you have a map?
~ George Lock - Pandemic, Panic and Prevention: The History of Poliovirus
