Changing Futures

Changing Futures

The ‘Changing Futures’ website – developed by teenagers for teenagers – exploring cystic fibrosis (CF) and gene therapy.

This project has been led by Nowgen (a centre for excellence in public engagement, education and training in biomedicine) and supported by the Wellcome Trust. The website  includes a range of free resources such as interviews with scientists, animations and video diaries.

The Changing Futures website comprises three zones: The CF Zone, The Gene Therapy Zone and The Teacher Zone. The first two zones explore how CF is inherited and the effect it has on people’s lives, as well as the history of gene therapy and the latest developments. The third zone is specifically for teachers; it includes activities and experiments and links to further information suitable for key stage 3, 4 and post-16 pupils.
