What is LifeLab?

LifeLab is coordinated by Wellcome Genome Campus Public Engagement partnering with five Cambridgeshire-based research institutions: The Wellcome Sanger Institute, the Babraham Institute, EMBL’s European Bioinformatics Institute, the University of Cambridge and the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology.​

​It is one of 55 European Commission funded projects for European Researchers’ Night, a Europe-wide public event taking place across 370 cities dedicated to celebrating popular science and fun learning.

​LifeLab gives you a chance to meet researchers and join them in events and activities exploring the latest breakthroughs and discoveries. With family, friends, your school or on your own, become a scientist and participate in research activities – join us to discover, have fun and be inspired!
