 “Proteins revealed” : From November 18 to 20, 2009, the IBS welcomed secondary school pupils
 “Perspectives on Life at the Molecular Level” : On November 21st, 2009, biologists, chemists et physicists from three different Institutes invited the lay public to discover DNA, proteins and cells.

A hundred school pupils attended a general presentation about proteins, methods used to determine their structure and also careers in research. After this talk they visited laboratories and conducted experiments.
