Citizen Science Megathon

CST was a proud sponsor of the Citizen Science Megathon held in Lewis Library this weekend. Citizen scientists from all over the world used an online game, Stall Catchers to participate in research for Alzheimer's disease. Participants looked at movies of blood vessels of mouse brains to identify "stalls" or clogged capillaries, where blood is no longer flowing. These exciting new crowdsourcing events accomplish in one hour what takes researchers one week in the lab. Learn more here.
