New cells is what the human needs: More than 1,880 Visitors visited the CRTD during the Long Night of Science


Is it possible to determine the physical characteristics of cells with the power of light, running water or tiny feathers? Why is the look of a mouse different to a fly? Answers to these and other fascinating questions were given to more than 1,600 visitors at the CRTD during the 12th Long Night of Sciences. Scientists of the DFG Research Center for Regenerative Therapies – Cluster of Excellence (CRTD), the Biotechnology Center of the TU Dresden (BIOTEC), the ZIK BCUBE, the German Center for Diabetes Research/Paul Langerhans Institute (DZD/PLID), the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE), the German Center for Neurodegenerative Disease (DZNE), TU Chemnitz, the Life Science Incubator (LSI), the CRTD cooperation school Kooperationsschule Martin-Anderson-Nexö-Gymnasium (MANOS), the School Projects, and the Nanomod students presented their research on July 5th, 2014 from 6pm – 1 am: At various stations, lectures, and children tours it was possible for anyone to get an insight into the work of the CRTD and other institutes in the network. The visitors were able to catch the criminal with the aid of finger prints and blood samples, they learned more about the regenerative capacity of Axolotls and zebrafish, they tried to get along in the darkness of blind persons as well as learned about forces in the cell or latest diabetes and neurodegenerative research.

We want to say "Thank you" to all the scientists for their contributions to this successful Long Night of Science. They made this diverse program possible.
The next Dresden Science Night will be on July 3rd, 2015.
