DIY Science

Science...all grown up | Hands-on lab experiences for adults (18+)

Friday, September 25 | 7 p.m.

Explore the possibilities of stem cells! Stem cells have unique abilities that make them different from fully differentiated cells. In this do-it-yourself lab experience, discover how stem cells are being used in medicine and for understanding disease. Participants will model how stem cells are used in discovering new drugs, explore cardiomyocytes (beating heart cells derived from stem cell cultures) and characterize cells in an effort to study disease.

Register for the September DIY Science.

About DIY Science

Hands-on laboratory experiences are not just for kids! Each month, a different activity encourages adult (18+) audiences to put on lab coats, goggles and gloves and get a firsthand sense of cutting-edge research.

Usually held from 7 to 9 p.m. on Friday evenings, these do-it-yourself labs feature different topics ranging from epigenetics to microfluidics to nanotechnology to rapid prototyping and beyond.

DIY Science is supported by the Morgridge Institute for Research, UW–Madison and WARF.
