Learn about stem cell research at Kulturnatten, October 13, 2017. Our team of researchers will be waiting for you in the new Mærsk Tower and guide you through the wonderful world of zebrafish, fertilised eggs and show human stem cells.

DanStem will be part of the ‘Culture night’-Kulturnatten Science Fair at the Mærsk Tower on October 13, 2017 from 18:00 to midnight. You can find us on the top of the stair case in the entry hall of the Mærsk tower. Come by and discover the exciting research done at the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Stem Cell Biology and help us to examine zebrafish, fertilised eggs, to sort cells and see human stem cells.

In daily work at DanStem we are addressing basic research questions in stem cell and developmental biology, aiming to answer questions and develop new strategies to treat diabetes and cancer.

At Kulturnattwn we will show you how we work with stem cells in the laboratory, what we can learn from using model organisms and you can ask us all questions that come to your mind about stem cells and their potential for treatment of disease.

Discover Copenhagens new landmark - the Maersk Tower

Scientists will guide you through the marvelous world of health and medical sciences with experiments, murder riddles and zebrafish. You will also have a look into the brain, the body, cells and come all the way up to the 15th floor where you will have a fantastic view of Copenhagen.
