Professor Caroline Brennan and Dr Adele Leggieri's GENE-ius fish project has been selected to be displayed at the Royal Society 2023 Summer Science Exhibition! Their lab use zebrafish as a model organism to identify genomic and genetic variants associated with human psychiatric disorders.
A Zantiks LT will be on hand to display how the lab are able to use Zantiks systems to study behavioural traits associated with psychiatric disorders. You will be able to try your hand at a zebrafish task to earn a treat. Come and join the Brennan lab and Zantiks at the Exhibition to learn more about the work!
The Royal Society’s annual Summer Science Exhibition offers a free interactive experience for anyone curious about the latest advances in science and technology. This year, visitors can get hands-on with drumming to improve their brain plasticity, predicting the next eruption of a quiet volcano, operating on the human eye using micro-surgical robotics in virtual reality, or exploring how Raman spectroscopy can detect both bone diseases and life on Mars.
Launching on Tuesday 4 July, the Exhibition allows the public to come and talk to more than 300 scientists over six days about their exciting research. There will be plenty of activities and events to discover.
