Get hands-on with cancer research in Cambridge!

February 12, 2024

Join us on Saturday 16 March from 11am – 4pm for the Big Biomedical Campus day at the Cambridge Academy for Science and Technology.

Meet scientists and clinicians from the programmes and institutes of the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Centre to get hands-on with our ground-breaking science as we tell the full story of the cancer research being undertaken across Cambridge!

We’re taking part in the Big Biomedical Campus family day on Saturday 16 March at the Cambridge Academy for Science and Technology (CAST).

Come and find us in the Cancer Zone on the second floor of the CAST building for hands-on experiments, informative demonstrations and plenty of fun activities for children and adults of all ages.

The ICM Programme will be there with the: Virtual Reality Cancer Laboratory
Designed as part of a collaborative effort between games designers, scientists, and astronomers, the virtual reality cancer lab is open for access! After putting on the headset, you will be transported to a virtual laboratory where you will experience an entirely new way of visualising tumours in 3D. Scientists are regularly using this technology to better understand cancer development and you will get the chance to join them!
