CITER’s outreach activities open-house session

19/09/2017, 12:15 - 14:00


Join the Cardiff Institute of Tissue Engineering and Repair for an afternoon of engagement fun!

There will be an “open house session” over an extended lunchtime (approx. 12:15 – 14:00) on 19 September where colleagues from across the University and general public can attend to experience “operation man”, “maggot racing”, “brain games” and the new “gooey blast-a-biofilm” activities.

Our new microbiology toolkit shows microorganisms interaction with the body and the involvement in the disease process.It has four components two of which will be demonstrated on the day; “blast-a-biofilm” and the “microbiome”. The “blast-a-biofilm” allows participants to discover more about biofilms, a community of microorganisms that can be involved in infections. The “microbiome” helps participants identify a range of microbes and discover where specific microbes exist on/in the body and if they can cause or prevent infections.

This session takes place during the CITER Annual Scientific Meeting.

Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to have a hands on approach with our CITER engagement activities and meet our members informally. We look forward to seeing you there. There is no need to book to attend, just come along on the day.

Everyone is welcome, bring your colleagues too!

The Cardiff Institute of Tissue Engineering and Repair (CITER) is a cross-school and cross-college research network in the broad research area of tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, wound healing, tissue repair and rehabilitation. Currently it has over two hundred and sixty members across nine colleges and made up of talented researchers who are willing to engage in multidisciplinary research and think outside the box to foster new approaches and collaborations.
