All you need to know about your placenta

1:00pm-2:00pm on Saturday 27 March

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 27th March. For events on or after 28th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

This event will help you understand how the amazing organ made by the baby, the placenta, and the mother’s uterus work together during pregnancy. Participants can compete for an inspired prize - but be careful only those who payed full attention can make it to victory! 

The event will start with a short presentation on the biology of the human placenta and uterus. These two organs are essential for the establishment of pregnancy and understanding how they work together to ensure the proper development of the baby, is one of the main interests of our lab. Our presentation will include a basic introduction on the anatomy, function and importance of these organs in human reproduction, as well as some remarkable facts unknown to most people. We will be using a variety of illustrations, animations and videos.

Following the presentation, there will be a chance for you to ask any questions you may have.


Then test your knowledge in our quiz and see if you can win the prize!
