Science engagement and outreach plays a vital role at the Cancer Research UK – King’s Health Partners centre. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to explore and learn about scientific research.

We are dedicated to bringing people closer to our pioneering cancer research through meaningful, memorable events and activities. Every year, PhD students, postdocs and senior researchers from across the centre engage with thousands of people, including Cancer Research UK’s network of volunteers and fundraisers, patients, students, our local community and beyond.

WHAT WE DO

  • We run a scientific outreach programme for year 12 students, designed to give students from our local community the opportunity to participate in activities based around cancer research and laboratory work;

  • We deliver enlightening lab tours and talks at research labs across Guy’s Campus;

  • We host a series of unique, immersive research events for Cancer Research UK’s volunteers and fundraisers, such as Revealing Research; · We run activities at Cancer Survivor’s Day - a special event for patients, their families, care givers, staff and the community to celebrate cancer survivorship.

Through this programme of engagement, we aim to provide meaningful and memorable opportunities to bring our researchers and the public closer together, inspire future generations of cancer scientists, doctors and nurses, and celebrate the incredible fundraisers and volunteers who are supporting Cancer Research UK and helping us to continue our life-saving work.
