Cancer comes in many shapes and forms, but have you ever had chance to take a look at cells up close? This exhibition shows a selection of fascinating cell images, showing the incredible detail of cancer in its various forms.

Visitors can look down microscopes to see cancer tissue samples up close, and add to a public gallery by sketching/writing what cancer means to them. There’ll also be cancer researchers working at the University of Birmingham on hand; visitors can discuss the images and the progress we are making locally in tackling cancer.
