2:00pm-3:00pm on Thursday 7 April

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 26th March. For events on or after 27th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

Join us for a virtual tour of the Babraham Institute’s Biological Support Unit (BSU) to see how this vital work is carried out and hear how our team rose to the challenge of COVID-19. Meet the people ensuring animal welfare is our top priority and find out what it’s really like working with animals in science.

The Babraham Institute is a world leading biosciences research institute whose work focuses on better understanding ageing and the effect it has on our bodies. Much of the Institute’s work underpins biomedical treatments for conditions such as cancer, autoimmune conditions, and infectious diseases, to name a few. This important research is only possible through the efforts of facilities on campus like the biological support unit who oversees our animal mouse research models.

In this virtual tour you will explore the facility and hear from the staff on-the-ground about the work they do. Discover how the facility remains clear of any disease outbreaks and the rules we follow to ensure our animals are only used for research where absolutely necessary. Please join us as we open up this often unseen aspect of research more than ever before in this interactive experience and discuss the societal impact of our work.
