Simple Science Seminar: From Vascular Research to the Future of Disease Treatment - Let's Examine Various Blood Vessels

2015-10-24 (Sat) 14:00 - 16:30

Blood vessels are an important organ for maintaining a living body, and when abnormalities occur, it can lead to various illnesses. In this seminar, we'll learn about what makes up blood vessels, and in what way diseases of these blood vessels are treated.
In addition, we'll try examining the blood vessels of mouse fetuses using a microscope. (This seminar is intended for high school students.)

Content of the Experiment:
1. Examining blood vessels of mouse fetuses
2. Anatomy of a mouse fetus (fixed sample)
3. Examining your own blood vessels
(We will be using a machine called a laser doppler in this experiment.)
