In May we were delighted to be part of the inaugural Pint of Science Festival, where we hosted a series of talks focused on the body. The second of these talks was with Prof Chris Schofield who told us Oxford oxygen stories!

How did the discovery of penicillin lead to an understanding of how we survive in high altitude, how cells sense oxygen and why it is linked to tumour growth as well as why "identical" twins are different.
