Virus vs Antibody: school lab visit

As a follow up to the Virus vs Antibody school art project earlier this year we were very happy to welcome pupils from the Royal Free School for a tour of the Institute of Immunity and Transplantation.

The session was centred around explaining how we fluorescently label cells for analysis using a flow cytometer or confocal microscope. As usual, the pupils asked lots of excellent questions.

The next day some of the pupils joined our Head of Department Prof. Hans Stauss for a photoshoot with their artwork on display around the building site for the new IIT building.

This project has been a load of fun and we have some amazing (scientifically accurate) art to show for it. Thanks again to the pupils for all their hard work.
