The Ribosome, curated by Karissa Sanbonmatsu of the Lab’s Theoretical Biology and Biophysics group, will officially open at the Bradbury on Friday, November 22. The exhibit is a visually stunning interpretation of the ribosome and its molecular behaviors. In addition to educational materials for student visitors and an original comic character to help our younger viewers understand the scientific concepts, the exhibit also features augmented-reality technology to transport visitors into a ribosome!  

Please join us November 22 from 2–4p.m. for a ribbon cutting celebrating the official opening of the Ribosome.
