Online, by ticket.

How can we reach the most difficult cancers with up-to-date treatments?

This event brings together a neurosurgeon (Professor Colin Watts), an engineer (Professor George Malliaras) and chemists (Professor Oren Scherman & Dr Ljiljana Fruk) to discuss the problems in delivering drugs to combat some of the most difficult to treat cancers, and how we can use new advances in engineering and chemistry to overcome them.

There will also be an opportunity to see simulated brain surgery to remove a tumour.

This event is part of the Cambridge Festival 2021.

Tickets for the general public will be available to book from mid-February.
