The Cumming School of Medicine is bringing a special edition of Science in the Cinema to Beakerhead! Hosted by the Cumming School of Medicine (CSM), this program brings together science and popular culture in a fun and engaging way. Watch a film with a health science theme and then listen as an expert explains the science behind the movie. An interactive question and answer period follow the movie.

This is a chance to ask a health researcher: is it science or fiction?
