My talks in 2010

Nov '10: Malaria: The Biting Truth

Malaria: The Biting Truth. Aarhus University, Aarhus, Denmark. 9 and 10 November 2010 (by invitation).

In 'Malaria: The Biting Truth' I confront audiences with the gripping and harsh realities of malaria. By starting with some remarkable discoveries in the late 19th Century, I then walk through a century of successes and failures in the combat against malaria, richly augmented with video material. To end with the eye-opening reality that if we would learn better from the past, we could go much further today. This talk is specifically for the general public and students, as an introduction in the world of malaria [in Dutch or English].

“I saw Bart Knols in action at Aarhus University, Denmark, where he was part of a two hours science lecture/show held by winners of the Ig Nobel Prize
 – the alternative Nobel Prize for research that makes people laugh – and then think. Bart is an excellent lecturer and performer. I really enjoyed his presentation, where he presented and explained difficult scientific questions and the same time made everybody laugh. I look forward to his return to Aarhus this autumn, where he will give a talk on Mosquitoes – and the biting truth about malaria” - Christel Rothe Brinkmann
