Public events to mark the 10th Anniversary of Human iPS Cells

Professor Shinya Yamanaka's group announced the world-first human iPS cells 10 years ago. To celebrate the anniversary, CiRA is hosting free events on December 17th (Sun.) for the public to learn about iPS cells and to explore our laboratory.

Join us in celebrating 10 years!



Science Illustration Workshop - Draw and Learn "Inside" the Cell

Around 37 trillion tiny cells make up our bodies.
What makes a cell?

Mitochondria, a nucleus, DNA...
They are invisible to the naked eye and difficult to understand, but drawing can help.

In this workshop, our science illustrator will introduce the cell world by drawings with participants. (Participants can bring their own drawing back home.)
