'Opportunities Ahead' Careers Fair

On Tuesday, 28 June 2016, members of the MRC MBU participated in 'Opportunities Ahead' - a careers fair for Cambridge school students. Through the use of videos, computer games and sequencing puzzles, our young visitors were given explanations of mitochondrial disorders and how they cause mitochondrial diseases. For further details about the event, along with links to the organisers, see: Opportunities Ahead.

Cambridge Science Festival 2016

On 20 March 2016, the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit participated in the Cambridge Science Festival with an event entitled ‘Fnidnig the msitkaes ni DNA that casue mitochondrial diseases’.

Visitors had the opportunity to learn all about mitochondrial diseases and took part in a range of activities, including fiendish genetic diagnosis puzzles, growing protein crystals and using scientific software to analyse a mitochondrial protein.

The event was very popular and well-attended and we received some very positive feedback from our visitors - thank you!
