Created Out of Mind collaborator Selina Wray joins this Pint of Science event to provide a snapshot of the innovative work happening in her laboratory at UCL, including the research that has provided the basis for our ‘Brains in a dish’ project.
Charlie Murphy took her ‘skin to mind’ video installation to West Yorkshire Playhouse’s ‘Every Third Minute’ dementia and theatre festival- engaging the process of her skin cells being transformed into brain cells and offering insights into cutting-edge dementia technologies.
Writer Philip Ball and researcher Selina Wray from the 'Brains in a dish' team joined a panel of scientists policy experts at The Royal Institution and discuss the latest developments in genetic medicine and whether we are ready for the ethical challenges these technologies raise.
In response to watching her brain cells growing in the lab, artist Charlie Murphy created intricate glass sculptures to explore the patterns and architecture of the brain, health and disease. These were displayed at gallery@oxo for ARUK’s Reframe Dementia exhibition.
Molecular neuroscientist Selina Wray and artist Charlie Murphy joined speakers at the Royal Society for Public Health's 2017 arts & dementia conference in London, to discuss their work engaging a broad audience in molecular neuroscience through dance!
Visitors at the 2017 Normal? Festival of the Brain were invited to be part of a brand new experiment about the brain! Dance meets science in this interactive workshop, devised by neuroscientist Selina Wray & artist Charlie Murphy.
