Life Sciences Research for Lifelong Health

Race Against the Ageing Clock at the Cambridge Science Festival


A team of 25 Babraham Institute staff members delivered the Race Against the Ageing Clock exhibit during the Cambridge Science Festival.

The exhibit highlights the latest findings in epigenetics and shares with the public how this research can support healthy ageing. There are various activities providing insights in how lifestyle factors can influence ageing, what the role of epigenetics is in the ageing process and how stem cell reprogramming might be able to teach us lessons for rejuvenation.

'Race Against the Ageing Clock' was also presented at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition in 2017 - you can view their video here: https://youtu.be/NpCj62nbzM8
