The NCCR TransCure is committed to the communication of research results and scientific content to the non-academic community. TransCure outreach projects target the general population as well as the younger generations and aim to foster the understanding of science, the dialogue between society and academia, and the interest for academic careers. Outreach activities are typically organized in collaboration with Universities, local associations and institutions, or are offered by TransCure research groups at research institutes. 

If you are a school teacher and you would like to organize a day in the lab for your class, please contact us.
