The science behind the exhibit

Biology: Changing the World is spreading the word about the great biologists of the past and sharing stories about how these scientists changed the world.

This project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and has been developed in partnership with BBSRC. Through public engagement, a schools resource, plaques on a building, an app and a website the project aims to celebrate scientists of the past and inspire those of the future.
