SCIENCE FESTIVAL - STAR MAPS TO CELL MAPS

23 May 2019 7pm

A lecture and panel discussion from the Cancer Research UK team bringing together astronomy and cancer biology.

To fully understand cancer, scientists need to know everything about a tumour - what types of cells are in it, how many there are and where they are located in the tumour. Having such a detailed picture would allow scientists and doctors to develop new ways to diagnose and treat the disease, to stop it spreading and stop it coming back.

With Cancer Research UK Grand Challenge funding, this project aims to build a 3D tumour that can be studied using virtual reality and which shows every single different type of cell in the tumour.

In this event, you can hear from some of the researchers involved in this exciting project, and find out how astronomers are helping cancer biologists interpret vast amounts of cell data.
