Open Day 2017

On Wednesday, 21 June 2017 the MRC MBU participated in the MRC's Festival of Medical Research and opened its doors to the public for its annual open day.

Our visitors were extremely interested to hear about the causes and effects of mitochondrial diseases, with explanations of the Unit's research towards the discovery and development of therapies.

Some of this research was shown in a practical demonstration, where fluorescent markings were used to observe the behaviour of fruit flies under a microscope.

The MRC MBU is pleased to announce that its first video in the series, "Life at the MRC MBU" is now live on our website.

This video, filmed and produced by Cambridge TV, is aimed at an audience of students up to the end of secondary school. It contains contributions from current MBU PhD students and postdoctoral scientists who have graduated through the University of Cambridge, having carried out their graduate research in the Unit.
