How lab discoveries are leading to earlier detection and more precise treatments for cancer patients

Sunday 25 March: 11:00am - 3:00pm

Cambridge Academy for Science and Technology , Robinson Way, CB2 0SZ

Join scientists from the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute, MRC Cancer Unit and Hutchison/MRC Research Centre to discover how cancer develops, grows, and spreads, and see how researchers and clinicians are developing targeted, personalised therapies and techniques to detect cancer sooner.

Get hands on with games to build your own cell, identify mutations in DNA, try your hand at brain surgery, and learn how new technologies are being used for the early detection and treatment of cancer. Put on a lab coat and isolate DNA or stain tissue samples and look at them under a microscope.
