Saturday 18th June 2016, 10am-4pm MRC Harwell, near Oxford, will be opening our doors to families on Saturday 18th June. We are leaders in genetic research, working towards improving medical knowledge and treatments by studying genetic traits in mice. It will be a great day out for all the family, with the chance to explore our labs, meet our scientists and find out what we really do. Discover how your genes make you who you are, see what it’s like to be a scientist by doing your own genetics experiment, find out why we’re investigating what genes do on a massive scale, take a guided tour of our labs, and even challenge yourself to do the same tests as our mice!
