A group of researchers from the Wellcome Centre for Molecular Parasitology (WCMP), the MRC-University of Glasgow Centre for Virus Research (CVR), and the Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health and Comparative Medicine attended this year’s Green Man Festival, an annual four day music festival in Wales, which draws over 20,000 people.

Einstein’s Garden is a part of the festival where researchers entertain festival-goers with interactive activities, performances and installations to illustrate new scientific research.

Through their “Crafty Critters” activity, researchers from the Lamberton and Maizel Groups within the WCMP, and the Streicker and Palmarini Groups within the CVR, were able to share MVLS virus and parasite research with audiences from across the UK and beyond.
