What does it feel like to be a guinea pig?

Discovery market

Keen to take part in scientific research, but not sure what it entails exactly? Definitely visit the stand of Bimetra, the Clinical Research Centre of Ghent University Hospital and Ghent University! Discover how you can take part in scientific experiments and contribute to science, and how the Belgian legislation guarantees your protection. Also test what you’ve remembered from the tour/presentation. An enthusiastic member of the team will explain how your blood samples or other bodily materials are deposited in a so-called ‘biobank’ for further research, for example into the causes and characteristics of cancer. You can even take part in a playful experiment that is also perfectly suited to children.
