We regret to inform you that the Xplore Health website is no longer available!
At the moment we are transferring the contents to the EduCaixa website (https://educaixa.org/), where you will be able to access the different resources from now on.
Temporarily and while the transfer of resources is ongoing, the discussion games, the experimental protocols, the teaching guides and the student worksheets can be found at: https://cutt.ly/XxPHnCH
We apologize for the inconvenience and we hope you can continue enjoying our content to bring health research closer to young people.

The Y virus is causing some deaths, but there’s an experimental vaccine that could help keeping it from spreading. So pick up your kit, put on your lab coat and find out if it passes the effectiveness, safety and quality tests so you can approve it for use. The decision is in your hands!
Do you want to investigate a new cure for the bowel cancer? In this virtual experiment we invite you to do sequencing genetics and to identify genes that could inhibit the proliferation of tumoral stem cells.
Once we've managed to find the drug target, why don't we try developing a drug? First we need to purify the target and research its three-dimensional structure in order to identify a drug that will interact with it. You'll need to use different techniques in order to find a drug and check that it works.
Do you want to produce a drug target against some of the symptoms of schizophrenia? We know that the enzyme known as POP is more active in people living with schizophrenia than it should be. You'll be able to manipulate bacteria in this laboratory in order to achieve the quantity of the enzyme you need.
In this experiment you'll be able to research a vaccine against HIV, designing the different phases of the experiment and visiting a virtual laboratory which will help you. Finally you'll find out more about the difficulties in finding a vaccine.
In the case of obese patients who do not respond to diets or drugs, there's always the option of surgery. Do you dare have a go at performing a gastric bypass operation and connecting the new pouch to the small intestine? This operation is called gastric bypass surgery and has a series of consequences which you'll learn all about.
How would you like to investigate the different parasite proteins in this laboratory to find out which provokes the strongest immune response? This is the vaccine candidate we're looking for! You'll travel around the world to find different blood samples in order to carry out your experiment.
How would you like to enter this virtual laboratory and carry out a biopsy on skin tissue using the right surgical materials? Afterwards you'll be able to check if the tissue is cancerous. You'll discover all about the different treatments for melanoma and the characteristics of suspicious moles.
Phase 3: Once you've produced the protein, you can extract it and use electrophoresis to find out which organism produces it in the greatest quantities so that it can be used to “manufacture” the drug.
Afterwards, you'll need to do some animal and human testing.
Phase 2: You can now synthesis the protein using the bacteria and plant and animal cells if you follow the correct protocols and select the optimum conditions for carrying out the experiment.
