Big success last night at the’ Mini Chercheurs’ stand of the Stromalab team where children (but also adults) came to meet the researchers.
Young aspiring « researchers » were able to discover how to obtain mesenchymal stem cells with powerful and varied therapeutic properties from adipose tissue.
The program: handling of the mouse stuffed animals, whose « operation » allowed the extraction of fat tissue, followed by a centrifugal passage to collect the stem cells to be grown in an oven before injecting them into a sick heart. Not to mention, of course, the careful and indispensable observation of our precious cells under the microscope.
After a mini quiz, a « research diploma » and game cards were awarded to the numerous winners.
