Why do we need to be creative provocateurs?

In 2019 Nature magazine offered the following provocation “Traditional thinking imposes that the arts and sciences are rooted in opposite values: creativity, imagination and freedom of thought for the former; rationality, rigorousness and acceptance of laws for the latter". But are they? Art and Design offer a way in which we can challenge post truth society. In this talk Antony Nevin will use his creative practice to trace a way that art and design can build a bridge between science and society.

Stimulation of the immune system by blocking immunosuppressive checkpoints has shown spectacular impact in cancer therapy. There is increasing evidence that immunotherapy might elicit similar outcomes in non-oncological settings. This is the case, for example, of neurodegenerative disorders where blockade of immune checkpoints has beneficial effects.  More generally, aging is associated with a progressive unbalance in the composition and activity of the different components of the immune system.
