Meet a Scientist


About Meet a Scientist

Meet our scientists, technicians and engineers as they pop into the gallery to share behind-the-scenes insights into how they make science happen. 

Meet a Scientist will run weekly throughout our new exhibition, Craft & Graft: Making Science Happen. Keep an eye on our website for more dates and times to be announced soon.

Meet a Scientist sessions are designed for individuals and small groups. If you plan to visit in a group of 7 or more, or are a school group, please let us know by emailing engage@crick.ac.uk. 

What's life in the lab really like? 

Bring your curiosity and have a chat with some of our friendly scientists. Discover what life in the lab is like and get hands-on with some of the tools they use in their daily work. 

This week’s scientists are developmental biologist, Joaquina Delas Vives, who studies the development of spinal nerve cells and cell biologist, Imke Ensinck, who uses yeast to learn how cells make decisions. 

FREE - just turn up at any time. Suitable for individuals and small groups.

Due to unforeseen circumstances our exhibition, Craft & Graft, is currently closed. We apologise for any disappointment or inconvenience this may cause. We are working to reopen it as soon as possible. Meet a Scientist will go ahead as planned.
