New genetics exhibits for the Science Museum

The Gene Therapy exhibit is inspired by dramas such as "Spooks"

We’ve just been down to the Science Museum in London for the opening of the new Who Am I gallery. The gallery covers modern biomedicine and we created two exhibits about genetics.

The exhibit manager told us “We’ve given you the really hard ones” but we’ve come up with two exhibits which give a gentle introduction to complex issues. Gene Therapy covers the treatment of Cystic Fibrosis using gene therapy. Inspired by spy dramas such as Spooks we created a sophisticated exhibit which uses short games to explain the gene therapy process. Patient of the Future looks at the use of genetic testing to decide who gets treated with which drug. It’s a more light hearted exhibit which visitors to the museum control using just two buttons.
