The tale of the Campus: from test tube to treatment
The Cambridge Biomedical Campus is home to many things - two much loved hospitals, world-leading pharmaceutical companies, prize-winning researchers and the University’s School of Clinical Medicine among many others. It’s certainly a busy place, but do you know how it is working to improve the healthcare and treatments you receive?
Take the opportunity to explore the campus from the Addenbrooke’s Treatment Centre to Cancer Research UK’s Cambridge Cancer Centre and the University Technical College. Across these buildings, you will be able to learn about the science behind new medicines.
As well as talks aimed at the young and old, there will be lots of things to see and do. Take a tour of an operating theatre, drop in at the teddy bear clinic and become a ‘worm neuroscientist’ and discover how a tiny worm is helping us to understand how our neurons work. Try your hand at ‘surgery’, wander through an inflatable colon and meet the wonderful medical detection dogs. Discover how blood cancers are diagnosed, understand the critical role of the pharmacy and find out how the Campus will develop in the future.
