Night of Arts & Science Festival in Leiden

On 19 September 2015 PluriMes researchers from Pluriomics took part in the Night of Arts & Science Festival in Leiden. Their stand at they event used some of the tools included in the EuroStemCell Outreach toolkit which PluriMes provided each partner laboratory with. Pluriomics also contributed a beautiful picture of cardiomyocytes derived from pluripotent stem cells made by Karin Langenberg at an exhibition showcasing the work of various biotech companies based in Leiden. Stefan Braam, a PluriMes PI, gave a talk about Pluriomics work with stem cells and the company goals. All of these activities provided many opportunities for the Pluriomic researchers to interact with members of the public.

PluriMes' Outreach Champion, Catarina Grandela, has written a peice about the event which has been published on the EuroStemCell website. See Catarina's article here.
