Cancer laboratory tours: See research in action
This event is for anybody with an interest in cancer research - patients, survivors, carers and families - to visit our research laboratories and hear from our teams of scientists about the work they are doing. Laboratory tours will run at the 3 designated times and participants can select 3 tours. Time slots for tours are as follows: 10.15am; 10.45am; 11.15am. Participants will be allocated time slots for the tours upon arrival.
