    The MRC-Asthma UK Centre in Allergic Mechanisms of Asthma will host a public event to celebrate major advances in asthma and allergy research and to highlight on-going areas of research in this field. It is an opportunity for the general public to meet the scientists, from PhD students to Professors, involved in asthma research, as well as a chance to broaden asthma and allergy awareness through interactive activities such as the “Respiratory Olympics”. A 12 foot high inflatable lung model will greet the visitors.

    This event is part of the MRC Open Week, in celebration of 100 years of the MRC.

    Life: A Healthy Game of Chance and Choice

    Saturday - Sunday, 10am - 6pm

    Museum visitors will be able to enter ’Life’ and take their character (pal) on a journey through the years by talking to our scientists and finding out about their amazing research on the brain, viruses and lots more. Visitors will take chances and make choices as they progress through the festival, to create a story for their character of a long and healthy life.

    The MRC-Asthma UK Centre in Allergic Mechanisms of Asthma will be asking the following question:

    Allergies – does your pal have an allergy? Is there a way to cure it?

    Stop. Breathe … and sneeze! Allergies can be exasperating and asthma could affect your pal’s lifestyle. From pollen to peanuts, substances called allergens can cause the body to react in unwanted ways. Find out more by crawling inside a giant nose to discover the allergens that can accumulate there.
