Get hands-on with Cancer Research UK. Scientists at the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute have been working with artist Dr Marzia Munafo to create temporary tattoo designs, highlighting the world-leading cancer research happening right now at the University of Cambridge.

Come to our stand at the New Museums Site and talk to our cancer researchers about how we can adapt our own immune system to fight cancer, why cancer cells aren’t the only important cell in a tumour and how we can use a person’s individual information to tailor cancer treatments.

You’ll receive one of three fun tattoo designs, plus a handout to take away with you.
