Pint of Science

Pint of Science | Benjamin Herzog, Anna Taranko

Enjoy the latest research over a cold beer in your favourite bar – brought to you by the scientists themselves!

Pint of Science brings some of the most brilliant scientists to your local pub to discuss their latest research and findings with you. You don’t need any prior knowledge, and this is your chance to meet the people responsible for the future of science (and have a pint with them).

Tonight, we have invited two researchers from life science and immunology. Join the event if you want to learn about these topics firsthand, meet the scientists, and get the chance to discuss with them.

Pint of Science is a network of thousands of volunteers who are passionate about bringing discoveries to people and was established by a community of postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers in 2012. The main Pint of Science festival runs over a few days in May every year in 25 countries worldwide.


This is an in-person event. Due to the limited capacity of the venue, only a limited number of seats are available. We organise entry on a first-come, first-served basis.

Benjamin Herzog is a life scientist and dedicates his life to algae, organisms that need little but can do a lot, e.g. make methane from sludge. In his lecture, he shows exactly how this works and how it can be used to solve urgent energy problems.

Microglia – a specific kind of big eater cells – are the guardians of the brain. If anything suspicious happens in the most protected organ of an organism, microglia get involved and activate their special forces. As well known team players, they work closely with other cells. Let’s have a look together into the exciting life of microglia and the immune space brain.
