Four Secondary 1 pupils from Mary Erskine’s School had a wonderful morning visiting the Centre, gaining wonderful insights into inflammation research and life as a scientist!

Hosted by Dr Gwo-tzer Ho, the students were given a broad taste of science. From zebrafish as a biological model, gut and liver diseases, and to Seahorse technology to measure cellular energy. Thanks to Rebecca Aucott, Elena Dora, Ross Dobie, Roderick Carter and Rodger Duffin for stimulating the next generation!
