Delve under the skin in our interactive zone dedicated to bodily research, where you can get up close and personal to discover the science behind some of the latest developments in medicine and health.

Explore the zone


Explore how tumours are made of different types of cells and test your knowledge in the tumour landscape game. Find out more about the key role that stem cells play inside the body, and how their chameleon-like abilities are being harnessed by researchers at King's College London to grow new body parts.

Discover the science behind body odour and what research from the Universities of York and Oxford could mean for tackling this stinky side effect of sweating. Try your hand at creating 3D-printed personalised pills or ask yourself if you would connect your brain to the internet- a reality that's much closer than you might think.
