This June, Sandra (Biofaction) and I (ICL) went to Bristol to participate in the Science Cafe series organised by the British Science Association (Bath and Bristol branch) to talk about our project MycoSynVac. We enjoyed an interesting and pleasant evening at the Greenbank Pub, with about 15 people that came to discuss with us about the science and ethics involved in our project on engineering new vaccines.
