Book this event through Eventbrite here

Why doesn’t cancer play by the rules, and who are the people trying to outsmart these rebel cells?

Join the Knowledge Quarter for the first of our post-lockdown in person private views, in partnership with the Francis Crick Institute.

Meet the trailblazing scientists who, in the cutting-edge labs of the Crick, are helping to turn the tide on one of the world’s biggest killers. Through an immersive art-installation, and a series of extraordinary films, you’ll discover the big questions, hopes and challenges that drive these remarkable scientists to try and outsmart this constantly evolving disease.

Decode cancer. Recode the future.

About KQ Private Views:

Staff and friends of the Knowledge Quarter and its 103 partner organisations get free, out-of-hours access to some of the best exhibitions in London.

Our series of exclusive Private Views has opened the doors (before they open to the public) of the British Museum, The Francis Crick Institute and the Wellcome Collection. More intimate venues such as the House of Illustration and the London Metropolitan Archives have proven equally as popular. These exhibition events, often accompanied by tours, provide an opportunity for the wealth of collection treasures in the Knowledge Quarter to be to be shared and celebrated.

Join us and make new friends with staff working in the Knowledge Quarter as you ponder manuscripts, genomes, butterflies, portraits, illustrations, busts, nudes and much, much more.

If you have any questions please get in touch with the KQ events team Bhav and Mia.
