People from across the region are being invited to spend the evening in conversation with some the University of Warwick’s cancer research team next week (Tuesday 30 January).
The Cancer Research Centre Ideas Café aims to create a relaxed environment in which experts can tell members of the public about the latest research being carried out at Warwick. There will also be time for discussion about cancer, with the aim of listening to the views and ideas from the public and informing future research.
Professor Annie Young, from Warwick’s Cancer Research Centre, said: “We’re looking forward to seeing members of our local community and to have some good discussion about how cancer is being tackled and treated and how it affects our lives. Thoughts, ideas and questions from the public will help impact our research.”
On the evening there will be five minute presentations from five cancer researchers and experts from the University of Warwick. Afterwards there will be round-table discussion where guests will talk in detail with each of these researchers about their work. The Ideas Café will takes place on Tuesday 30 January 2018, from 6.30pm until 9pm at The Oculus, on the University of Warwick’s main campus.
Parking and light refreshments will be provided. This event is free of charge.
