MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit


On Saturday, 15 October 2022, ten members of the MBU participated in the Big Biology Day at Hills Road Sixth Form College.

We took hands-on, interactive activities showcasing the MBU's research on mitochondria. Our scientists (junior and senior) were available to join in, to give explanations and to give careers advice.

Our activities included our MITOTrumps card game, demonstrations using fruit flies with a fluorescent light microscope, and mitochondrial pinball.

We all had a great time - it was great to be able to talk to our visitors face to face - and we look forward to next year's event.

Thank you to all those involved.

MITOTrumps is available to download from the Teaching Resources for Schools area of our website, where you can find additional resources, such as posters, our Activity Book and our computer games.
