The Heart Inside And Out
Saturday 31 March
So much of scientific imaging in heart research is reliant on the manipulation of animal tissue samples. This is in order to observe the biological structures to understand how they work and why they are important for maintaining health. Come along to this workshop in ASCUS Lab in Summerhall to try some of these techniques and processes for yourself and look at your own heart in a whole new way.
Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a guardian and they must also purchase a ticket.
Please note: the tissue and samples being used on the day will be from mice and zebrafish provided by cardiovascular scientists conducting scientific research into human health. Part of this activity also includes dissection of a pigs heart.
