Talk by Ewan Camplisson on Monday, 20 November 2023 from 6pm – 9pm

We would like to invite you to join us for a talk by Ewan Camplisson, recipient of the Anglo-Danish Society’s Coronation Award 2023. Ewan is currently studying cardiovascular sciences at Manchester (fieldwork for PhD – “Mitochondrial mechanism of cardiac longevity – lessons from the world’s oldest living vertebrate, the Greenland Shark). 

Ewan was invited by Professor John Fleng Steffensen at The University of Copenhagen to join a research expedition to study the extreme longevity of the Greenland shark and how their hearts avoid age-related dysfunction. These sharks can live for over 300 years, making them the oldest known vertebrate. Professor Steffensen chartered a ship to study the sharks in May 2023 and Ewan took part in the expedition.

We have asked Ewan to give us an insight into his fascinating research and the recent expedition, which we feel sure will be both very interesting and an eye-opener.

This event will be held at the Civil Service Club, 13-15 Great Scotland Yard, London, SW1A 2HJ on Monday, 20 November 2023 from 6pm – 9pm. After Ewan’s talk you’ll be able to ask him questions about his work and afterwards we’ll enjoy a delicious finger buffet with tea, coffee and biscuits (that’s dinner sorted) while we take the chance to mingle.

Tickets are £35 per person for members and £45 per person for non-members.
