New and Improved!
DISCOVER how the latest genetic knowledge is helping us move closer to better, more personalised treatments for disease.
The students’ day at the Perkins includes two engaging sessions hosted by research scientists. They will help students discover how tools, like BioInformatics, are used to uncover clues to better understanding disease.
Students will be guided by our great team of BioDiscovery scientists and will learn how to use technical tools like a micropipette and mini-centrifuge. They will also learn to stain and observe the HeLa cell line as an example of a cellular tool. Images can be streamed from our microscope to students iPads for annotation. They will have access to the images when they return to school.
