Researchers and fundraisers from our Cardiff Centre of Excellence will be attending the Cardiff Cancer Research Open Day on Saturday 20th of September to promote and raise awareness of what we do in Wales

On Saturday 20th September 2014 from 10am – 3pm, Cardiff researchers and Regional Manager for Wales, Rachael Davies will be attending the Cardiff Cancer Research Open Day with a stall giving the general public and fellow researchers the chance to find out more about what we do in the LLR Cardiff Centre of Excellence. 

Hosted by the Cancer Research UK Cardiff Centre, this free drop in event takes place at the Hadyn Ellis Building, Maindy Road, Cardiff, CF24 4HQ and will give everyone the opportunity to chat to cancer research scientists and doctors, to understand more about how discoveries are being taken from the lab into treatments designed to benefit cancer patients. 

Attendees will be able to go “behind the scenes” in the laboratories, with the chance to actually look at cancer cells under the microscope and have a go at being a scientist.  There will also be a range of short talks on many interesting cancer topics (all aimed at a lay audience), with local experts on hand to answer any questions and learn more about the science behind the research with hands-on demonstrations and games.

If you would like to attend this event, please register online at  or contact Rachael Davies on 02920 742376 or email to book a place or for more information.



This sounds like a fantastic opportunity for people to find out more about the extraordinary work that's being done in Cardiff to help beat blood cancer. I was shown round one of our hospitals in Liverpool and it really was an eye-opening experience. Well worth going if anyone is in two minds about going.
