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!
On Sunday, 22 March 2015 the MRC MBU participated in the Cambridge Science Festival. Members of the Unit demonstrated how mitochondrial dysfunction leads to illness, through the use of movies, posters and computer games.
