The Mould that Changed the World
Lucy Remnant, Post-doc in the Earnshaw lab, has been donning a lab coat outside the centre this August, as she treads the boards as part of the science based musical “The Mould that Changed the World”. Lucy appeared in a shorter version of this musical, based on the discovery of penicillin, back in 2018, and is back as a key member of the 2022 revival cast.
Between the Saturday matinee and evening performances of the show, a panel discussion was held considering how the arts can be used to communicate health care science in an effective and engaging way. The centre public engagement team jumped at the chance be part of this event, with Lily Wang (Marston lab), Ankita Gupta (Sawin lab) and Anjitha Gireesh (Arulanandam lab) administering mould related tattoos to willing showgoers.
Thanks to everyone involved and a massive congratulations to our ‘mouldy’ star Lucy.
