The Variables Present: An Evening of Science Variety

Monday 11 September 2017

Stanley Strawbridge (Smith lab) will be performing.

 

Cherry Hinton Festival

Saturday 16 September 2017

Scientists from the Stem Cell Institute are going for the first time to the Cherry Hinton Festival in Cambridge to discuss their research, and get people thinking about the power and potential of stem cells. Make your own playdoh cell to take home, learn how cells are looked after in the laboratory, and experiment with turning ‘body cells’ back into ‘stem cells’ (as if by magic!).

Led by Thorsten Klampfl and Jacob Grinfeld (Green lab), and Justyna Rak (Méndez-Ferrer lab).

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.
