Blogging Microbes - Communicating microbiology to netizens - Updated speakers list

Could I ever be more pleased that pretty much everyone I've been inviting has had the kindness to say yes? HELL NO! This time I got a YES from Alam Faraz, an author in the Memoirs of a Defective Brain (my favourite science blog for a long time now). 

The full panel of speakers is pretty much closed by now and we count on some really interesting names. We have a venue, we have a date and we have a tremendously interesting topic, so all we need now is YOU GUYS.

Pop in next September the 19th at 3pm, there is room (D96a in the Medical School - D floor) for a lot of people. After the seminar we will continue our friendly debate in Johnson's Arms, a pub 'round the corner.

Stay tuned for all the updates will be showing up here in real time!

How to get there

The hospital can be found on the western side of the city of Nottingham. It is situated just on the east side (inside) of the Nottingham Ring Road at its junction with the A52 to Derby. The A52 crosses the M1 at junction 25.
Leave the M1 motorway at Junction 25, and take the 'A52 to Nottingham', past Stapleford, Bramcote and Wollaton Park. As you pass the University on your right you will come to a large traffic island with QMC on the right immediately after the island. Turn right here, take the first slip road on the left into the hospital grounds and continue along the hospital perimeter road.
