What are cells? How many do you have? What are they made of? At the Cambridge Institute for Medical Research, we study the building blocks of cells and how they work. We then try to discover what happens when they go wrong. This helps us to understand diseases better, so that in the future, new treatments might be developed.

Take a closer look inside your cells with our range of microscopes, and try out our hand-held mini-microscopes. Have a go at making a plasticine cell in a Petri dish, and challenge yourself to build some molecules with our kits.
