Life Science Research Network and Cardiff University take science to the Urdd Eisteddfod

15 May 2017

The Life Science Research Network Wales supports science across Wales and is coordinating an active science exhibition at this year’s Urdd National Eisteddfod in Bridgend, from 29th May to 3rd June.

Researchers from Cardiff, Aberystwyth and Swansea Universities will be sharing their science with the public of all ages, at the GwyddonLe Science Pavilion on the Eisteddfod field.

Highlighted will be the super complex human brain, healing damaged kidneys, computer modelling for drug discovery and interactive parasite displays.

The Giant Brain Dome that was such a hit at the 2016 National Eisteddfod of Wales in Abergavenny, will feature again… where else on earth can you bounce inside a giant brain?!

Professor Arwyn Jones from Cardiff University said, “This is a great opportunity for the public to be aware of the support the Life Science Research Network Wales is giving to Science in Wales in attempting to improve treatments for conditions such as cancer, dementia, microbial infections and kidney disease”.

Dr Andrea Brancale, Life Science Research Network Scientific Director said, “We are delighted to be attending this year’s Urdd Eisteddfod to showcase a cross-section of some of the excellent research being undertaken in drug discovery across Wales”.
