      "Cellular Journey" is a Fleet-created exhibition that features a series of interactive exhibits designed to introduce you to human cell biology, the importance of stem cells and the potential impact of stem cells on medical research in the fields of regenerative and personalized medicine.

      You can use a microscope at the "From Tissues to Cells" exhibit to examine various human tissue samples. You'll learn about four different types of tissues – epithelial, connective, muscle and nerve – and how they each carry out a specific function.

      "Journey Inside a Cell," using a unique virtual reality concept to explore what it looks like inside a human cell. The fly-through concept allows you to examine the cellular universe within the human body in-depth by venturing into specific parts of a cell. Get to know the inside of a human cell, and then launch a stem cell on its path to become a specific type of cell.

      A realistic lab display will introduce you to the layout and functions of a typical stem cell research laboratory. Additional hands-on interactives give you the opportunity to explore some of the real life techniques scientists use in the lab when working with stem cells.
