Pop-up Plant Science

Teams from the Sainsbury Laboratory, the Department of Plant Science, NIAB, the John Innes Institute and many more will pack out the pop-up Main Lawn marquee, bringing a wide range of displays and have-a-go activities all designed to illuminate how fundamental research into how plants work could help address some of our most challenging concerns.

Throughout the day, you can have a go at modelling and predicting the spread of global plant diseases, visit game stations exploring how to extract cancer treatments from the rosy periwinkle and develop new
technologies for making vaccines in plants, explore the structural qualities of different plants with the University’s Natural Materials Innovation group and plot the map of life by extracting DNA from fruit, plus lots, lots more pop-up plant science.
We are very grateful for the support of the Sainsbury Laboratory and the CambPlants Hub.
