A busy weekend for teams from the Department of Pharmacology at the Cambridge Science Festival!

Visitors to the Department of Pharmacology took part in the Medicines Under the Microscope event where they got to fish for water fleas, examine their body parts under the microscope and then determine the effects of alcohol and nicotine on water flea heart rate. Helpers from labs throughout the Department were involved and many participants went away happy with new pet water fleas!

There were two thousand visitors to the Plant and Life Sciences Marquee, where a team from the Departments of Pharmacology and Genetics presented the 'Highlighting Biology' event. Visitors learnt how cell biology was transformed by the discovery of fluorescent proteins, viewing glow-in-the-dark specimens and making their own slides to look for fluorescence in yeast cells. The event was organized by Rhys Grant, and supported by the Royal Society of Biology and GT Vision.
