Stem Cell Exchanges Project

Two of our graduate students lead a project to bring a bit of collaborative creativity to our engagement at the Stem Cell Institute, in collaboration with Pint of Science. 

 

Podcasts

Mariana Alves (Silva Group) interviewed a selection of our SCI Principal Investigators for a series of 11 podcasts. The podcasts seek to uncover each group leaders approach to research and the impact their discoveries are having on our understanding of stem cells and disease.

Listen to the podcasts here.

 

Artwork

Katie Tremble (Silva Group) built a partnership with Cambridge Pint of Science to pair the 11 podcast scientists with Cambridge-based artists over a six-week period, starting in May 2017. The artists and scientists will be encouraged to work collaboratively to create a piece/s of artwork inspired by stem cell science.

The artworks were exhibited at a public showcase event in Michaelhouse Cafe on 19th June - 1st July with an exhibition finale featuring performance poets on Thursday 29th June. More information on the exhibition and evening event is available here.
