Outreach competition- the winners

Posted by on April 10th, 2014

Science outreach often involves using metaphors, where a real life object or situation is used to explain a complex scientific concept.

Posted by on March 1st, 2014

The first ever World Dicty Race  will require cells to navigate a complex microfluidic maze to reach a pool of chemoattractant at the finish line.  Diffusion of the chemoattractant will create a spatial gradient to guide cells along the shortest path to the finish line. The challenge is to engineer Dicty or HL60 cells to […]
