Mitopoly: a game to explore mitochondria

Mitopoly demonstration by Helmi KreininAlso 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.
