CAMBRIDGE, Wednesday 7 May 2021 — On Friday 7 May 2021, bit.bio CBO Dr Paul Morrill was a speaker in the second episode of a mini-series podcast with Pint of Science.

The Pint of Science podcast is a part of the Pint of Science Festival, the world’s largest science communication festival. It gathers thousands of science curious people worldwide to introduce science in a fun, engaging, and usually pint-fuelled way. This year Pint of Science will go online from 17th-20th May in the UK with a great variety of online events.

The series continues with Dr Paul Morrill, who discusses bit.bio’s central core – to develop the underlying technologies capable of producing consistent batches of every cell type in the human body. He explains that the drive is to get the context of the biological system right so that it can be studied within the whole context of how it should be performing, be it healthy or in a disease state.
