Open science at the Jeffrey Cheah Biomedical Centre
Our building, which opened in Summer 2019, encompasses an impressive variety of scientific research from stem cells, to infectious disease and cancer biology. Our researchers investigate Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, cardiovascular disease and blood cancers and lead development of new therapies to treat disease.
Join us on our journey from the lab bench to the clinic by taking a tour of our state-of-the-art research facilities, or drop in for one of our informal ‘science café’ talks to meet our scientists. They’ll be lots of activities to try your hand at, as well as a virtual reality experience and a career ‘hot-desk’ for those seeking advice on future studies or careers in science.
We will be serving refreshments all day from our café. Talks and tours will happen throughout the day. Places on the tours are limited and will be first come first served, please sign up when you arrive.
Unable to join us in March? Our ground floor café and art exhibition is open to public throughout the year, curated in collaboration with Kettle’s Yard.
Open Science is hosted by the Wellcome – MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute and Cambridge Institute for Therapeutic Immunology and Infectious Disease (residents of Jeffrey Cheah Biomedical Centre) with support from our neighbours at the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute.
