BRAINFest 2017

An interactive showcase of all things ‘brain’

As part of the first ever Cambridge BRAINFest the Institute took along an exhibit on 'Stem cells and the Brain' to this vibrant take-over of Cambridge Corn Exchange.

Researchers from the Káradóttir and Franklin labs developed a set of interactive hands on activities to initiate conversations with the public about;

  • Why insulating the neurons in your brain with 'myelin' is so important.
  • How brain stem cells play their part in myelination.
  • What impact stem cell research is having on new therapies for myelin-related diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis. 

In addition, Professor Roger Barker spoke about his pioneering Parkinson's research in the opening night showcase for the Festival on 23 June. 

BRAINFest was organised by Cambridge Neuroscience and ran from 23 - 25 June 2017.
