Science in the City: Stem Cell Research for Everyone

Link to a blog post on the Eurostemcell website could be found here:

A total of 4000 Science in the City visitors of all ages came by the Stem Cell Exhibition during the six  festival days. 

The interest from young and old was large and the stem cell exhibition had a constant flow of visitors who wanted to know more about stem cell research.
