Guy's and St Thomas' and King's College London's National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) comprehensive Biomedical Research Centre is launching a regular free Cafe Research event for local people of any age.

Local people can pop along to the early evening event, grab a cup of tea or coffee and learn about, and engage in an interesting discussion around an exciting area of medical research.

The first event is being held in the Biomedical Research Centre cafe on the 16th floor of Guy's Tower.

Attendees will hear how the specific sets of white blood cells that have long been associated with healthy responses to infections and vaccinations, are in fact probably involved in an enormous variety of diseases, such as inflammatory bowel disease, obesity and many cancers.

A short informal presentation will be followed by an audience-led discussion with researchers working at the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre.

"We want to engage local people in the research developments taking place on their doorstep and offer them opportunities to discover and discuss the exciting projects taking place," says Sophie Auckland, the Biomedical Research Centre's user involvement manager.
