Cancer comes in many shapes and forms, but have you ever had chance to take a look at cells up close? This exhibition shows a selection of fascinating cell images, showing the incredible detail of cancer in its various forms.

Visitors can look down microscopes to see cancer tissue samples up close, and add to a public gallery by sketching/writing what cancer means to them. There’ll also be cancer researchers working at the University of Birmingham on hand; visitors can discuss the images and the progress we are making locally in tackling cancer.

This event is presented by the School of Cancer Sciences and Cancer Research UK as part of Arts & Science Festival 2014, a week-long celebration of ideas, research and collaboration across campus. For details of the full programme, visit: www.birmingham.ac.uk/artsandsciencefestival.
