Scientists from the Linnaeus Center in Developmental Biology for Regenerative Medicine (DBRM), a world-leading research center at Karolinska Institutet specializing in the fields of developmental biology, stem cell research and neurobiology, hosted an outreach event in central Stockholm open to the public on March 23, 2013. This unique event was a collaboration between DBRM, the (R)evolution in Science Communication doctoral course, and Unhinged Science.
It was a fantastic day filled with activities, information sessions, mingling with scientists, and musings about the exciting research within the neural stem cell field. Topics included DNA and genes, building a thinking brain, visualization of stem cells, bioengineering, disorders of the brain, plus fun activities like making your own neurons, stem cell twister, DNA extraction, activating your stem cells and many more. The event was aimed at visitors of all ages and walks of life.
