The University of St Andrews School of Biology invites you to an event that shows how microscopy has advanced over the years within the University, particularly in Cell Biology. The biological cell is known for being the building block of all life, making it one of the smallest units of our bodies, as well as other organisms. To look at how humans work from one of the smallest units, scientists use advanced microscopy to create images and videos of how cells behave. In this exhibition, different scientists who work on different organisms within the School of Biology, have pooled some of their images to show you how intricate the biological cell can be. So join us on 15th and 16th December at the Byre Theatre Studio for our all day exhibition, or our bookable events that are family-friendly, to see how far science in the microscopy world has progressed. All events free.


Bookable workshops on “What does a Cell Biologist do?” running 11am-12pm and 2pm-3pm on Saturday and Sunday, capped at 10 kids age range 7-11, but other ages accompanying welcome too.
