Come on a tour of the human body with scientists from the Faculty of Life Sciences and School of Computer Science at The University of Manchester. Collect your “passport” and travel around the body. Learn how the brain communicates with all the different organs in your body and how it controls your senses. See how the heart works and how your lungs help you breathe. Ever wondered what your liver and kidneys do? Come and find out! Travel through your gut and learn about the bugs that can infect it! Find out how your body heals wounds and what happens to your organs when we have diseases. Make your own mark and help us make a gigantic picture of the human body in our ‘Body Rangoli’.
