The MRC Cancer Unit is committed to promoting the understanding of science and communicating the research that we undertake. We regularly organise, or take part in, events for younger audiences such as the Cambridge Science Festival and schools outreach programmes, as well as those for adults such as Cafe Scientifques and the Cambridge Literary Festival.
Staff at the Unit also participate in a number of educational programmes aimed at a range of audiences from students to clinicians.
Our researchers often appear in both local and national, print and broadcast media, discussing their latest findings.
We are happy to consider requests to take part in educational or public outreach activities, and these should initially be directed to the Scientific Portfolio Manager.
If you are from a media organisation and would like to make an enquiry about the research work carried out by scientists at the MRC Cancer Unit or about cancer research in general, please contact the Scientific Portfolio Manager.
