STEM CELL REVOLUTIONS at Melbourne Neuroscience Institute

Stem Cells Australia and the Melbourne Neuroscience Institute invite you to attend a special film screening of STEM CELL REVOLUTIONS.

Explore the realities behind the hopes and fears associated with stem cell research.

This award-winning documentary takes the viewer on a journey from the earliest experiments that first revealed stem cells in the body, to the latest scientific and clinical developments. In particular, it explores the hopes and fears associated with stem cell research.

The film features eminent international scientists in stem cell research, including 2012 Nobel Laureates Shinya Yamanaka and Sir John Gurdon, Nobel Laureate Sir Martin Evans, as well as Sir Ian Wilmut, creator of Dolly the sheep. Acclaimed novelist Margaret Atwood serves as a non-scientific commentator in the film.

Join Associate Professor Megan Munsie from Stem Cells Australia for this special screening  to find out more about stem cells and participate in a Q&A session as we reflect on the challenges of communicating science to the public.
