We’re constantly being told that if we live a healthy lifestyle we’ll have a happy heart. What does this mean? How does the way we eat affect our heart? Vikas Kapil, a scientist and a medical doctor from from Queen Mary University London will be telling us all about it. We’re also going to be hearing from Kebs Hodivala-Dilke, the Deputy Director of Barts Cancer Institute. She’s going to be telling us how it’s not just our healthy bodies that need a good blood supply; cancer cells need it too. The blood contains a lot of the food cancer cells need to survive. If we cut of the supply chain, can we kill the cancer? Keb’s will be telling us how starving cancer cells can help to kill them.

This event will include an exhibition of Prof Peter Cull's work, hosted by Cedric Gilson. Cull was a medical artist who produced work which was not only strikingly beautiful but anatomically correct.
