A new medical exhibition has opened at W5 in Belfast in a partnership with pharmaceutical firm Almac.

MED-Lab is designed to educate visitors about the human body using interactive exhibitions.

It also explains how scientists at Almac Group, which is based in Craigavon, discover and develop medicines and diagnostic tests.

The attraction is funded by Inspiring Science Fund, a partnership between the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS), UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and Wellcome. Additional support was awarded by Almac.

Alan Armstrong, chairman and chief executive of the Almac Group, said: "It is a real privilege to be partners in such an exciting project.

"As a business employing over 5,000 individuals globally, our success depends on the talent and skills of our most important asset, our people. It is therefore crucial that we continue to invest in the next generation.

"Almac is dedicated to advancing knowledge and interest in science, technology, engineering and maths subjects, and sharing our rich history and work carried out in the medicine development life-cycle for patients globally."
