Crick Chat on cancer: the big picture

20 October 2017

Location: The Francis Crick Institute, 1 Midland Road, London, NW1 1AT

Crick chat on EM 

Cancer is caused by changes in genes. But studying individual genes isn't enough to fully understand the disease. Join Francesca Ciccarelli, who runs a lab at the Francis Crick Institute, and James Spicer, a clinician from King's College London, as they discuss how their approaches to studying the whole genome, or 'the big picture', are leading to new insights into cancer.

Crick Chats are relaxed and friendly evening events that bring you face-to-face with researchers working at the Francis Crick Institute and our partner organisations.

Hear about their work, ask a burning question, or just enjoy a chat; Crick Chats are free and open to all. No knowledge of science is required.

FREE - booking required via Eventbrite.

This event is being held as part of Bloomsbury Festival, a five-day celebration of the area's pioneering creativity.
