Stem cells in Scotland
The Scottish Stem Cell Network wanted to tell more people about the new area of stem cell therapy. There’s a lot of research going on in Scotland in this field and the possibilities are very exciting. But how do you make the link between the complex cell biology and real medicine? We created three exhibits which give a gentle introduction to the subject but also deal with the issues and hard science. “Stem Cell Stories” uses the characters “Molly” and “Jim” to introduce the subject. In “Stem Cell Dilemma” you have to choose whether to trust internet clinics offering stem cell treatment. “Find Out More” gives you the depth of information that potential patients need. There’s a lot of interest in the exhibits and they’re going be installed in the Dundee Science Centre, The Glasgow Science centre and various science fairs.
