What are the life-changing treatments that depend on animal research? And what does the political landscape look like, both in the UK and abroad? Join scientist and broadcaster Adam Rutherford and cancer researcher Fran Balkwill to learn how animal research is boosting animal welfare, increasing alternatives to animal use and creating tougher regulations on animal testing while still making medical breakthroughs.

There Is No I In Team

Upstairs at the Lamb

The perfect team should be filled with selfless players all working together under great leadership towards a collective goal, right? Well – maybe not necessarily.  Because it turns out that that there are examples from nature where animals can accomplish spectacular things as a ‘team’ but do so without a leader and just by going about with their own business.
