Worms are cleverer than you think! was started by Dr. Kristin Webster and Dr. Denise Walker , neuroscientists at the Medical Research Council’s Laboratory of Molecular Biology (MRC LMB), a research institute in Cambridge, UK. We think neurons are cool and designed this outreach activity to share our love of science! We soon recruited help from Dr. Rebecca Taylor’s lab, including Dr. Soudabeh Imanikia and PhD student Josh Newman, who created the aging activity.
