BTRU @ Big Biology Day 2018

October 13, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Saturday 13 October sees the return of Big Biology Day, one of the UK’s largest free biology public engagement events involving hands-on science fun for all the family and this year we’re delighted to be part of it all. We’ll be joining a host of other organisations, companies and institutes at Hills Road Sixth Form College in Cambridge to get hands-on with biology.

BTRU researchers will be demonstrating some of the latest organ perfusion technology which can revive donor organs outside the body before they are transplanted. This is one part of the solution to the current organ shortage. As well as seeing the technology in action, visitors will be able test their own knowledge about organ donation and transplantation, plus try their hand as a surgeon with our laparoscopic simulator. Please join us for what promises to be another excellent Big Biology Day! No booking required.
