The next event in the Café Scientifique calendar will see the first external guest speaker give an interactive talk on all aspects of hand function.

Mr Indranil Chakrabarti, consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Rotherham NHS Foundation, will discuss what makes the human hand so unique, with an emphasis on anatomy, some common disorders and treatments-including joint replacement.

Mr Chakrabarti’s experience in orthopaedic surgery has placed him as one of the most skilled hand surgeons in the country, and he is often asked to lecture across the globe.

Café Scientifique Lincoln was set up by three University of Lincoln Biomedical students to bring together individuals from across Lincoln and Lincolnshire with an interest and passion for science. It is a unique opportunity to interact and talk with leading researchers and physicians.

The talk will take place at 7.30pm on Tuesday, 18th March in the Conference Room, DoubleTree by Hilton, Lincoln.

This event is funded by the University of Lincoln and is free for all students, faculty and members of the public. Refreshments will be available.
