Main content

Together with the patient organization Hjernesvulstforeningen, they with have a stand where they will give introductory lectures on cancer and DNA for a young and grown-up audience. They will explain how the disease can occur, and what a cancer researcher does. The audience can isolate their own DNA from saliva, as well as look at their epithelial cells in a microscope. In order to compare their own healthy cells, they should also see cancer cells growing in medium in a microscope.

Come to our booth and be a cancer researcher for 5 minutes!
