Browse our bookshelf, then get a chance to borrow a real researcher for a small-group conversation. All of our ‘living books’ study or have a career connected to health or medicine. Whether they create new drugs, research novel treatments for diseases or promote healthy lifestyles, they all have fascinating stories to tell. Take this opportunity to chat to friendly experts – it’ll be good for body and soul!
