Proteus Research Capsule now open at Glasgow Science Centre

Ongoing: Proteus have launched a semi-permanent interactive exhibit within Glasgow Science Centre.

PhD students and Postdoctoral Researchers from the EPSRC Proteus International Research Collaboration worked collaboratively for over a year with the Glasgow Science Centre creative team to produce an interactive Research Capsule, as part of the Centre’s Bodyworks space.

The Proteus Research Capsule is an exciting new addition to the Centre and showcases the key features of Proteus technology in a creative and engaging way, allowing the user to explore the revolutionary healthcare technology being developed and learn more about the research team behind it.

By combining the scientific knowledge of Proteus' scientists and the University of Edinburgh MSc Science Communication students with the vision and design skills of the Centre team, a sophisticated model 'patient' has been developed where the public can control a digital bronchoscope in order to find and diagnose infection in the lungs within a fun game environment.

The Proteus Research Capsule consists of a bronchoscope game and a visual display of information about the research
The Proteus Research Capsule is open to the public for the foreseeable future at Glasgow Science Centre.

The Research Capsule is open to the public within the normal entry fee and times of the Centre – see their website for more details.
