On the Friday 21st of September a group of 28 PhD students and 3 Master's students together with a postdoctoral researcher from BCDD Dr. Norma Padilla-Mejia and a volunteer PI Dr. Mattie Pawlovic set out for a 3 day adventure in Abernethy Activity Center in Nethy Bridge, Inverness-shire.

Asymmetric cell division is the process through which one cell divides into two cells with different identities. It is of particular importance for stem cells, which divide asymmetrically into another stem cell (thus self-renewing themselves) and a cell destined to become a more specialised cell type, such as for example a neuron or a muscle cell. A model of choice for the study of asymmetric stem cell division are neuroblasts, neural stem cells of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster.
