SOLD OUT!

The science of MURDER—poisons, venom and a peek in to what makes a killer.

Come and take a dark and intriguing look at the history of poisons and venoms in war; the ingredients that make a murderer; modern murders with strange new weapons; and ways in which we’re using poison to murder cancer cells.

Join MC Bernie Hobbs to learn more, as Dr Aaron Sell pulls back the curtain on the mind of a murderer, Dr Harendra Parekh peers into poison, and Associate Professor Bryan Fry shares what he’s learned from a life studying venom. 

This is the third event in the Australian Academy of Science’s five-part series, ‘the science of LIFE & DEATH’. Through it, we explore life and death and how they affects us from the moment we start living: from how we come into existence and how this could change in the future, to ways of preventing and creating life and find unconventional ways to die. The Science of Life & Death will push us to the edge of our comfort levels, starting a national conversation about life, death and beyond.
