One in two of us will suffer with cancer in our lifetime and almost all of us have some experience of the disease. But do we really know what cancer is and how we can work towards a cure? Is a cure even possible? And how can we arm ourselves with the right information to help us prevent and treat cancer?
Alice is a researcher who has worked in the Institute of Translational Medicine at the University of Liverpool with both non-profit and for-profit organisations. In this talk she will discuss what cancer is, how it works and just how we are working towards understanding and curing the disease. She will talk about the complexities of research and some of the big success stories that relate directly to some of the many types of cancer. Only when we understand the difficulties we face can we discern between bogus cancer treatment claims and genuine scientific advancement in this field
The Separate System is a newly commissioned work by artist Katie Davies, presented as an immersive two-screen installation in Gallery 1. Produced collaboratively with veterans through workshops at HMP Liverpool and HMP Altcourse, the film investigates the distinct yet interconnected spaces of the military, custody and ‘civilian’ life.
