Discover the secret behind Santa's genes with Professor Kevin Moffat

There are many ways that our genes affect our lifestyles, in particular during festive seasons of eating and drinking. Join Professor Kevin Moffat from the University of Warwick, and explore how genetic analysis in fruit flies is helping us to identify new regulators. Might we even explain Santa's resistance to alcohol and his apparent longevity, despite his considerable consumptions?

This event will be held online on Zoom, and in-person at: Room OC0.03, Oculus Building, School of Life Science, University of Warwick.
Parking is available, and you can view an interactive map of Warwick Campus. The room has wheelchair access and hearing loops.
