“We are thrilled to be invited to display our work at the Science Museum. It’s exciting that we are able to access so many people of all ages and showcase some of our innovation and research. We want to highlight that learning about the science of the eye and some of the conditions that affect it is accessible to everyone whether you have full sight or not. That extends into art as well, and I have an especially keen interest in ensuring that it can be enjoyed by everyone. We will be showing the science behind that too.” - Dr. Moosajee, Moorfields Eye Hospital
The exhibition, supported by The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Biomedical Research Centre at Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and UCL Institute of Ophthalmology, includes demonstrations and examples of pioneering science such as growing an eye in a petri dish, a model eye and brain, scent and sound boxes and tactile blood cells. Dr. Moosajee will educate and entertain children and adults with demonstrations, talks, and science exhibits during the three-day exhibition while discussing her own research and discoveries in sight and genetic conditions of the eye.
"Science of Sight" is open through August 10th.
