Get hands-on with scientists from the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute to learn about the work they are doing as part of our mission for 3 in 4 people to survive cancer by 2034.

Our interactive stalls are based around two of the fundamental questions that all cancer researchers must ask: How do we identify cancer in the body? And how do we get rid of it safely and effectively?

Join us for the chance to look inside the body using light, sound, magnets and more. Ever heard an MRI orchestra? Now’s your chance!

Find out how scientists try to target just the dangerous, unhealthy cells within a cancer tumour by building your own against the clock… and then visit our scientific tattoo parlour to learn how immune cells can fight back to do just that!
