Innovative Learning Week: Screening of award winning documentary - STEM CELL REVOLUTIONS

  • When:  Thursday 21 February 2013
  • Time:  1.30 - 3 pm
  • Location:  Swann Lecture Theatre, Kings Buildings, University of Edinburgh
  • Free screening of the award winning feature-length science documentary on stem cells - STEM CELL REVOLUTIONS

'Best Documentary' at the Vedere la Scienza science film festival in Milan 2012.

STEM CELL REVOLUTIONS explores the history and scientific evolution of stem cell research - from the earliest experiments that first revealed stem cells in the body, to leading current scientific and clinical developments. Funded by the Wellcome Trust, and the result of a close creative collaboration between Edinburgh-based scientists and film makers, the film features unique and-drawn animations and interviews with leading stem cell scientists.

It is a historic moment for stem cell biology - stem cell researchers Shinya Yamanaka and John Gurdon, both featured in the film, have just been awarded the Nobel Prize for medicine.

The 70-minute screening will be followed by an open-floor discussion with the scientist and film director behind STEM CELL REVOLUTIONS - Prof Clare Blackburn (Centre for Regenerative Medicine) and Dr Amy Hardie (Edinburgh College of Art), and the University Chaplain Harriet Harris.
