Discover the microscopic world from tiny machines to mysterious creatures at pop-up labs in Ely.
Family-friendly activities such as experiments, taste tests and fortune telling molecules will take place at the cathedral and Cross Green in Wicken at the end of this month.
LifeLab's overall aim is to connect communities across Cambridgeshire with the exciting life science and innovation happening on their doorstep.
Dr Kenneth Skeldon, LifeLab lead from Wellcome Genome Campus Public Engagement, said: "Last year LifeLab was a big success in Peterborough and Cambridge, with more than 3,500 people coming together with 160 scientists, technicians and software developers across 50 different activities and events.
"It's great to be back and we're doubly delighted to be expanding our 2019 programme into Ely as well."
