18 Mar 2017 - The Body Experience

Copyright © Wellcome trust centre for Cell-Matrix Research

This year as part of the British Science Week celebrations, the Centre along with colleagues from across FBMH took over Manchester Museum for the Body Experience. 

With people waiting for the doors to open at 10am, the visitors were non-stop! The Thornton, Lennon, Streuli, Gilmore and Swift labs worked incredibly hard entertaining and inspiring the public all day. 

We saw over 2000 visitors, handed out 750 passports and 500 bags, hosted over 80 researchers across 18 stands with 12 volunteers (including Becky Dodd from the Day lab, who recorded 18000 steps that day!) and 8 science buskers. 

Thanks to all who made it possible.
