Description

What's it all about?

Bioscience LITE is a series of free twilight teacher training events hosted by the Wellcome Genome Campus and the Babraham Institute to explore some of the big topics in bioscience. These sessions will provide you with updates from scientists on contemporary bioscience, access to some of our scientific facilities and introduce you to resources that can be used in the classroom.

The 2019 programme

For all sessions refreshments will be available from 17:30 and presentations will begin at 18:00.

30th January 18:00 - 20:00 Imaging and Scanning Electron Microscopy

Discover how state of the art microscopy is used to research autophagy (self eating), macroendocytosis (digestion of extracellular material) and entosis (a recently discovered form of cell cannibalism) and how these 3 distinct but inter-related forms of cellular ‘eating’, which play an important role in normal biology and become deregulated during aging or disease (e.g cancer).

Presentations by Simon Walker - Head of our
Imaging Facility, and Oliver Florey - from our Signalling programme, followed by Q and A and a visit to our Imaging Facility for an overview of confocal and scanning electron microscopy.

27th March 18:00 - 20:00 Bioinformatics and Big Data, Wellcome Genome Campus

What is Bioinformatics and how can you bring it into the classroom? Find out about the latest advances in the applications of big data. This session includes scientist presentation, Q and A, resource discussion and a tour of the Wellcome Genome Campus data centre.
