The MRC@UCL Centenary Science Fair will be a family fun day for all ages and will include lab tours, talks, hands-on activities, interactive demonstrations, games and exhibitions. There will be stalls and exhibits in the UCL Cloisters off the main quad, and a treasure hunt for younger visitors. Some of the groups involved and activities planned include: The Centre for Medical Molecular Virology will run science workshops offering a fun, hands-on experience of what the centre does. Including DNA extraction, testing pipetting skills and allowing visitors to demonstrate creative flair by designing and drawing their own interpretations of viruses. The Unit for Lifelong Health and Ageing will exhibit research findings about the National Survey of Health and Development (NHSD), alongside a timeline of public interest milestones. They will also host a variety of activities, including testing grip strength and measuring reaction times. Students from the Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology will show what it's like to work in a lab, with various interactive presentations and demonstrations, and the opportunity to discuss careers in medical research. The MRC fellows at UCL will give a series of talks aimed at the general public highlighting the biomedical research funded by the MRC. These talks will focus on the big challenges in biomedical research including cancer, heart disease, infections and diseases of the nervous system. The Seminar series will be officially started by Nobel laureate and one of the BBC's 'Beautiful Minds', Sir Tim Hunt In addition, visitors can sign up for visits to the research labs at the Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology.

LAUNCH: Bloomsbury Institute for Pathogen Research (BiPR)
25 October 2011
Tuesday 8 November, 2011, from 4pm
This is a new partnership between the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and University College London, to form a centre for world leading research on infectious diseases. Involving many MRC Centre members, BiPR will bring together the basic science, translational and clinical expertise across the institutions, and associated hospitals, to provide an optimal environment to produce new drugs, vaccines and diagnostics.
The vision of BiPR as a centre for infection research will build on cohesive academic links between resource rich and poor countries, and BiPR will be well placed to implement research of global impact. Our close clinical engagement, industry partnerships, and establishment of clinical cohorts, will provide the basis for genetic and biomarker based approaches to common and rare infectious diseases.
The launch will start at 4pm in the AV Hill
Lecture Theatre (Medical Sciences Building, UCL) followed by a drinks
reception in the Old Refectory (Wilkins Building, UCL).
Please RSVP by 1st
