Your body’s cells are constantly under attack from pathogens such as bacteria and viruses. These attacks trigger cell signalling pathways in which a sequence of chemicals interacts and instructs each cell how to act or react. Can you complete the signalling pathway in time to get the message through and ensure that your cell knows how to launch a counter attack?

The Babraham Institute’s pop-up laboratory escape room, supported by the Biochemical Society, will require you to solve diverse puzzles and get to grips with scientific equipment and techniques. You’ll come across concepts of cell signalling research and its importance to the functioning of the human body. Only when your team (4-6 players aged 15 or older) masters all the challenges will you be able to complete the signalling pathway that will stimulate the cell’s response to the threat.

Cell signalling research at the Babraham Institute studies how chemical pathways inside cells allow them to adapt their function and behavior in response to changes in their surroundings. Control of these pathways can change with age and contribute to illnesses. You can find out more on our website:
