Mitopoly: a game to explore mitochondria
Also as part of the September Explorathon event, PhD student and STEM Ambassador Helmi Kreinin (a member of Dr Richard Hartley's group) developed a board game to help explain how medical drugs are developed.
The game, Mitopoly, allows people to explore the experience of developing a drug that targets mitochondria - the powerhouses of animal cells. These drugs can counter the oxidative processes that are implicated in ageing.
A PDF of Mitopoly is available to download.
