Cherry Hinton Festival 2017

Scientists from the Cambridge Stem Cell Institute went to the Cherry Hinton Festival in Cambridge for the first time to discuss their research, and get people thinking about the power and potential of stem cells. The researchers took along PluriMes activities to get the public involved, visitors were able to make their own playdoh cell to take home, learn how cells are looked after in the laboratory, and experiment with turning ‘body cells’ back into ‘stem cells’ (as if by magic!).
