Pint of Science NL - "Ode to Newfoundland Genetics!"

Kathy Hodgkinson is a Professor of Medicine at Memorial University. Her research is on inherited human genetic diseases and the power of family studies to help understand the burden of disease. For the last 15 years she has worked on familial young sudden cardiac death caused by abnormal heart rhythms. 

Pint of Science happens at the same time in over 10 countries around the world. It is an event where scientists have the opportunity to inform the general public about cool research happening in their area, while having a pint of beer.

This is a free event and open to anyone over the age of 19. There are 3 different nights with 3 different research topics, discussed by multiple professors from Memorial University. Learn more at
