See how the heart works and how your lungs help you breathe. Explore the wonder of the human spine and perform your very own surgery! Travel through your gut and learn about (and see) the bugs that can infect it. Collect your passport in the reception area and start your very own ‘Body Experience’.

Manchester Minute Microlectures – 16 March 2013, from 1pm
The first M-cubed (Manchester Minute Microlectures) event is being held to highlight biomedical research to the public. A team of researchers will be explaining aspects of their work in just one minute. They will inspire and amaze us with the important research being done within The University of Manchester. These talks will start at 1pm in the Museum’s Discovery Centre and will be followed by coffee and cake so you can chat to the researchers afterwards to find out more. Free – suitable for children aged 8+.
These events are organised with the Faculties of Life Sciences, Human and Medical Sciences and NOWGEN.
