In case you haven't already seen it, our laboratory is down to the last 3 in a competition at the University of Birmingham to fund research. We're developing mini models of cancer, called organoids which could completely transform the way cancer is treated in the UK. Watch the video on the left for more!

There's really good projects in addition to ours so every vote counts - please vote here -
