In the past two decades, Life has welcomed an average of 300,000 people a year to its science centre: families, adults and school groups. Groundbreaking research into regenerative medicine and genetics has taken place onsite and made international headlines, and hundreds of thousands of people have benefitted from the NHS clinics at Life.
A lot has changed in that time. When Life opened, many people were nervous about genetics research and the concept of IVF babies. Life is proud to have been a pioneer in both fields.
Life is 21 in 2021. It’s never been more important to inspire people to explore the big issues facing humanity and how science and technology can help us to tackle them.
