Researchers from the MRC Human Immunology Unit have developed two exciting new activities for the public to learn all about fighting viral infections;

The human body is constantly under attack from a whole range of viruses (not just the infamous COVID-19 virus!) so your highly-effective immune system is always on patrol to seek and destroy infections. Find out how your body attacks viral invaders by playing games to train the immune system to recognise and kill infected cells.

The stall will be running from 10am-4pm on both days.
