In this week's Lab it Tuesday meetup at the Biomakespace, Ben Dobson (the Microscope Man) will introduce us to his wonderful artwork:


I am the Microscope Man, a secondary science school teacher by day, photographer with the microscope by night.

I prepare animal, vegetable and mineral for the microscope and seek the beauty within.

I have had several exhibitions and have several coming up. For example at the chill cafe 2 @ the ibis hotel, near the station throughout November, King's College Cambridge in Feb/March and at the Cavendish Laboratory later in March.

The beauty in this world is more intense in tiny places.


General format

Lab it Tuesdays at the Biomakespace are usually an opportunity to meet some new people, find out new things, share progress and brainstorm ideas. In addition to this, we often have talks delivered by scientists, artists, startups and experts from the local life science and technology clusters here in Cambridge and surrounding areas.

The meetup is usually between 7 and 9 pm, where the first hour is for speaker talks and the next hour is determined either by the speaker when some talks have follow on activities, or by the audience where it becomes an informal hour of discussing projects being planned at the BioMakespace, laboratory training on specific topics or equipment, discussing an interesting paper etc.

For those amongst you, who would like to get involved behind the scenes and help support the running of Biomakespace, come and talk to us on Tuesdays at 7 pm or turn up at our Thursday meet ups (7 pm) at the same venue .
