The texidermist Sebastian Pilz will give us a tour through the anatomical collection.
Afterwards the postdocs at the Institute of Anatomy will give us insight into their research:
They will let us take a look through their multi-photon microscope which will allow us to view fascinating images of living tissue. We will learn how genetically altered organisms help us to understand the mechanisms of sick bodies and, in the end, contribute to the healing of humans. And we will experience how experiments in zero gravity are conducted in order to understand to what extent and why the Earth's gravity is necessary for the functioning of human cells.
