Our Research Centre celebrates its 5th birthday

Mar 24, 2018

The Biological and Chemical Research Centre is celebrating the 5th anniversary of its opening. The first part of the building opened in 2013. Our laboratory is located in the second half, which opened in 2016 - which means we moved in two years ago!

The celebration programme on 23-24.03 included a day full of speeches and lectures, including Maria Górna's popular science talk about structural biology and our research projects. The next day was full of exciting games and events for families and children.

The celebrations were accompanied by a dedicated insert in the University newsletter, featuring an interview with Maria about crystallography, our plans for a new diagnostic test for detecting infectious diseases and the need to combat antimicrobial resistance. (An older interview with Maria can also be found on the 5-year celebrations website).
