Warwick Cancer Research Centre Open Evenings

David Snead & Nasir RajpootWednesday 26 April 2017, 6-8pm

Improving Accuracy in Grading Cancers

Clinical Trials Unit, University of Warwick, CV4 7AJ

UHCW was the first pathology department in the UK to become digitised, enabling greater accuracy in grading cancers and leading to more targeted treatments

Until now, tumours have been studied by a pathologist through a microscope or by a radiologist on an x-ray sheet. Come and find out how Professors Nasir Rajpoot & David Snead (pictured right) and their teams are working with an automated slide scanning process at UHCW NHS Trust. Their aim is to develop advanced scanning technologies for use across the NHS.

Come along to our free open evening to visit our research labs and see how cancer research happens here. There’s parking available and we’ll be providing refreshments – and don’t worry if you aren’t familiar with cancer research already as no previous knowledge is required!

There is no charge for the event, but if you would like to donate to our work, you can do so here. 100% of your donation will go to cancer research.
