In our Body and Mind Zone, experience the ways scientists and medical staff learn about our inner workings and find out all about ground-breaking new approaches to treatments and patient care. Play memory games with experts in the science of aging or hear from Imperial engineers working with amputees in Cambodia on new low-cost prosthetics. Journey deeper into the mind and light up parts of the brain with neuroscientists and take home samples of model brain from a cryogenic 3D printing machine.

Kids can learn magic tricks with our Clinical Trial Myth Busters or enjoy a fairground of heart-related games and circus attractions. There will also be artwork inspired by living with asthma or the inner workings of our hearts, and a chance to think about your well-being with our Centre for Performance Science, where we will be looking at how engaging with the arts can boost mental health.

Outside the main marquee you can take the eight off your feet, grab a hot beverage (or cold one, depending on the weather) and give your thoughts on patient involvement in improving our research inside our People’s Research Café.
