The Virtual Child at Cambridge Festival

The CRUK Children’s Brain Tumour Centre of Excellence was delighted to attend this years Cambridge Festival which was held on Saturday 18 March. This was a fantastic opportunity for the public to learn more about the ground-breaking cancer research being undertaken by scientists and clinicians across Cambridge!

The Centre presented the work being carried out as part of the Brain Cancer Virtual Institute  also had a poster on The Virtual Child project which will help us understand how cancer develops in children.

Our jelly brain surgery demonstration was very popular, where volunteers could practice their operating skills and also to learn about the challenges in brain tumour surgery! Over 1300 people attended the event and we were pleased to share all the exciting current and future research in the Centre!
