Cut + Paste exhibition at the Francis Crick Institute

Yesterday evening we were delighted to be joined by our fantastic partners, supporters, and ambassadors at the iconic Francis Crick Institute in London.

Guests had the opportunity to explore the Cut + Paste exhibition to learn how new tools called genome editing technologies are changing the way our scientists alter DNA and make discoveries.

We also heard from our Chief Executive Officer, Michelle Mitchell OBE, and Dr Gillian Farnie, Group Leader of Cancer Research Horizons. They showcased some of the drug discovery research that’s delivering breakthrough medicines for people affected by cancer – people like Mei-Ling Lancashire, one of our media volunteers, who shared her moving personal experience of cancer. Her story highlighted just how vital our research is. Research that you make possible.

Thank you, Mei-Ling, we’re so grateful to you for sharing your story.

“Together we really are winning the war against cancer.” Mei-Ling Lancashire.

Thank you to all our supporters and everyone who joined us at the event.

Together we are beating cancer.
