Peter Andre visited the labs on the Hammersmith Campus of Imperial earlier this year to try his hand at research and speak to some of our scientists.
Researchers from the CRUK Imperial Centre participate in a large number of events throughout the year – from the intimate setting of our Science Café for patients and public, to the international Precision Medicines cancer conference for the scientific community. We have a number of events coming up in 2017. To review the archive of CRUK Imperial Centre events, please see previous Events.
6 July 2017
Two speakers discussed Lymphoedema
- Mr Paul Thirulchevam is a surgeon who presented new guidelines for treatment based on current research.
- Professor James Moore Jnr is Director of Research at Imperial's Department of Bioengineering and discussed his current research on lymphoedema.
Imperial Festival and Cancer Innovations showcase
Our scientists demonstrate hands-on activities at the Imperial Festival and the Festival Fringe events throughout the year.
In May 2017, around 20 researchers from across the CRUK Imperial Centre engaged visitors with hands-on activities to explain their research. Guests took part in ‘Conversation C’, debating which areas of cancer research they thought are most important.
Professor Zoltan Tokats and Mr Daniel Leff spoke about the pioneering iKnife - technology that can tell surgeons when they are cutting through cancerous tissue. They discussed the clinical need for this and the potential impact it could have on patients in the future.
The talk can be watched here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQzXnCCyu5I
Throughout the weekend, the public were also able to go behind the scenes on a tour of the labs with researchers from Professor Ed Tate’s group. Visitors had the chance to hear what it’s like to be a scientist and try their hand at a few experiments.
Guests left understanding how the CRUK Imperial Centre is carrying out lifesaving research which will have a true impact on patients in the future, and got first-hand view of what their generous donations are used for.
