Game Lab 2016

On the search for the next winning game

The Stem Cell Game Lab 2016 was designed to build on the success of our pilot event in 2015, in which a successful game ‘Cell Bound’ was developed. 

Game Lab is a 48hr games development competition in which we invite gamers, graphic designers and developers to attend a crash course in stem cell medical research, including a hands-on tour of our laboratories. Teams were partnered with SCI researchers and had 48 hours to create a new computer game based on a given theme.

Two of the winning games are now being developed further:

-       Blood Tales

-       EPICgenetics

Potentially cancerous cells kept in check by competitive neighbours, study of oesophagus finds

May 18, 2020

The expansion of ‘mutant’ cells that could lead to cancer is often kept in check by their neighbours, research from the Wellcome Sanger Institute, the University of Cambridge and their collaborators has found. The team discovered that when equally-matched cells in the oesophagus of mice coincided, they acted as a brake on one another’s growth.

Key nose cells identified as likely COVID-19 virus entry points

Apr 23, 2020

Two specific cell types in the nose have been identified as likely initial infection points for COVID-19 coronavirus. Scientists discovered that goblet and ciliated cells in the nose have high levels of the entry proteins that the COVID-19 virus uses to get into our cells.
