Field Sports and Bedroom Sports - the answer

Organised by:

SCI's London Group in partnership with UCL's Chemical & Physical Society


Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.


The talk will cover applications of the bioluminescent protein Pholasin® (derieved from the rock boring Pholas dactylus) to the measurement of reactive oxygen species produced by activated leucocytes.

We relate this activation in elite athletes to different states of fatigue, infection, inflammation, stress, anxiety, and over-training and, when measuring leucocytes from urine, indentify very early sexually transmitted infections.
