CTR at the Science Festival in March

A team of CTR members run a very successful stall at the Science Festival this March. Families came to learn about the functions of the placenta and research by the CTR. There were also fun guessing games for children to enjoy and a very detailed model of a placenta for them to handle. A big thank you to all who gave up their week-end to run the stall!
