Breast Cancer Research Open Day

On Saturday 21 May, we are opening the doors to our research laboratories in the Queen’s Medical Centre and inviting you in to discover world-leading breast cancer research taking place here in Nottingham and Derby.

The day includes:
• Two 30-minute laboratory tours
• Short presentations explaining the different areas of our research – from early detection to stopping the cancer from spreading and developing targeted treatments.
• Insights into the reality of life with breast cancer from women fighting the disease.
• Interactive demonstrations, drop-in activities and local support information.

Over 1.6 million women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. That’s a big number, but our world-class researchers are determined to stop breast cancer in its tracks.

We’re raising £1 million to find ways to create the world’s first blood test to detect breast cancer early, discover why breast cancer spreads and how it can be stopped, and finally, to develop treatments which are targeted for each patient. Come along to this open day, see for yourself the work that is being done and find out how you can make a difference – with every single penny raised going straight into the research lab.

If you would like come, please complete our online registration form by Friday 20 May.
