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.
Our Doctoral student Loïc Fiévet was awarded the young researcher prize at SFTS, the French Blood Transfusion Society, which took place from September 20-22nd 2017 in Bordeaux. Congratulations to him!
