Being Superhuman Café

19 November, 2020, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

This is an online event.

High visual acuity is a characteristic of the best pilots. Sommeliers develop excellent olfactory skills… but what if they could smell more than wine? What if humans could use an enhanced sense of smell to detect the chemical changes in our bodies linked to disease? Join this interactive discussion about the world of human skills and senses, and how they have been used to diagnose disease throughout the ages and in modern day. With Dr Hannah Newton, Associate Professor of Health Humanities at the University of Reading and Joy Milne, researcher in Analytical Olfaction at the University of Manchester with an extraordinary ability – the ability to smell Parkinson’s disease.
