Studying at Cambridge



An exhibition of shared creativity

19 June - 1 July 2017, 8am - 5pm (Daily)

Michaelhouse Cafe, Trinity Street

At the Cambridge Stem Cell Institute we are always looking for creative ways to prompt debate about stem cell research and gather perspectives from the wider community. In this exhibition, 11 of our researchers were paired with local Cambridge artists to create works that both challenge and celebrate the potential of stem cells. We hope the art on show offers some new insights into the cutting edge research that our scientists undertake and provides a flavor of the complex cellular world that we are striving to understand and harness.

The Exchanges project was the brainchild of two graduate students Katie Tremble and Mariana Alves (Silva group) and was delivered in partnership with Pint of Science

The exhibition is part of the MRC Festival of Medical Research which is taking place between 17 - 25 June, 2017.

Join us to mark the finale of the exhibition with an evening of stem-cell inspired performance poetry. Take the opportunity to speak to the artists and scientists behind the artworks on display, in a relaxed gathering of the stem cell curious. 

While you listen, join Neural Knitworks and use the scientifically informed knit, crotchet and knot patterns that were originally developed for National Science Week in Australia to make your own wooly neuron.
