The Fabric of Research with Cancer Research UK
Saturday 23rd July, 10-5.30
Sunday 24th July, 11-5
Monday 25th – Friday 29th July, 10-5.30
Cancer affects everyone. In the UK, one in two of us will be diagnosed with cancer in our lifetimes but, thanks to research, more people beat their disease than ever before.
To celebrate Manchester’s year as European City of Science, we’re bringing Cancer Research UK’s research to life like never before. Designers from the University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University have worked with researchers from the Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute and patient volunteers to create unique artworks that showcase their latest scientific advances and tell the personal journeys of people affected by cancer.
Manchester is famous as the birthplace of the textile industry and cancer research, with the Manchester method for radiotherapy still in use today. Now most of our mills are tourist attractions but Manchester still has Europe’s largest cancer centre and, sadly, the highest cancer incidence in the UK. Luckily it also has a world-leading research Institute working on the treatments of tomorrow.
This exhibition celebrates their pioneering progress in helping to beat cancer sooner.
