We are EdinCell, a Science Communication project based in the School of Biological Sciences, The University of Edinburgh. Our team is entirely made of research scientists with a passion for Public Engagement. All our activities are funded by The Wellcome Trust

Our aim is to provide a hub of communication between research scientists and the general public. In collaboration with different partners we try to develop innovative ways to bring research in Genetics and Cell Biology to the public.
