Have you ever wondered what bugs and brain-saving drugs have in common? Can a spider help minimise brain damage? Join Professor Glenn King as he breaks down the mystery of venoms and the role they play in medical research.

Contrary to popular belief, Professor King considers Australia lucky to have such a large number of native venomous species. The King Lab at UQ maintains the most extensive venom library in the world, which includes venoms from more than 700 species.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to hear from one of The University of Queensland's world-leading researchers followed by an opportunity to meet and mingle with fellow graduates over drinks and canapés.
