Mutator VR: Cell Flows at the Crick Institute

We are delighted to announce that Mutator VR will be part of a packed evening of pop-up science and kaleidoscopic mix of patterns studied at the Francis Crick Institute. "Why do patterns exist in biology, what do they look like and how are Crick scientists making sense of them?" Find out through an enticing line-up of talks and hands-on activities from scientists, plus music, food and drink.

Highlights include:

  • Immerse yourself in a virtual micro-environment inspired by patterns of movement inside our bodies through Mutator VR
  • Decorate a cookie with Bake Off star (and Crick scientist!) Yan and the World Influenza Centre
  • Test your sense of direction and play The Place Cell Game
  • See baker’s yeast in a whole new light under a fluorescent microscope and make your own stop-motion animation
  • Take a science selfie in our photobooth

The bar will be open throughout the evening serving drinks and light snacks.

The event is free but booking is essential. Get your ticket here

Crick Lates are themed evening events that give you the chance to delve into many areas of Crick research. From getting hands-on with state-of-the-art laboratory equipment, to crafting activities and inspiring talks, there’s something for everyone, no matter how much science you know.
