Stained cervical cells viewed under the microscope

22-28 January is Cervical Cancer Prevention Week. To recognise that, we’ve compiled some of our most useful content on cervical cancer, from research in the lab to screening in the clinic, to get you up to date on how we can prevent cervical cancer. 22-28 January is Cervical Cancer Prevention Week.
