Imperial Lates

Take a trip through the science of marvellous medicines, notorious narcotics, and everyday cravings at our latest evening of discovery. From artistic re-imaginings of the brain on psychedelics, to talks on the science of microdosing and the under-representation of women in clinical trials, the Lates will bring together leading experts on drug design, development, use and abuse.

Together they will show off new innovations in the treatment of cancer and sickle cell anaemia with hands-on demos. Also, in the run up to Valentine’s day, the Lates will celebrate the powerful drug that is love with a heart-filled card making workshop inspired by the science of attraction.

Throw in a bar offering cocktails and mocktails, and an intoxicating DJ set and this is a free evening of science discovery not to be missed.

Register for this Imperial Lates to receive a preview of the full programme of live demonstrations, workshops and talks.

Imperial Lates are most suitable for over 18s.

Advance registration is now closed but there will be drop-in spaces on the night. 

We are expecting that this will be a popular event so we recommend arriving earlier in the evening if you would like to avoid the crowds. It will get busier from 19.00 onwards. In the unlikely situation that the event space reaches capacity we will operate a one-in, one-out queuing system.
