The work of iMATCH lead, Professor Fiona Thistlethwaite, has been featured as part of an exhibition at the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) that showcases new and innovative cancer research. The exhibition focuses on the development of cancer research throughout history, and how, although 1 in 2 people now get cancer, more people than ever before are surviving the disease. The exhibition informs visitors of momentous breakthroughs in cancer research throughout history, such as the development of chemotherapy, but also more recent developments in research and the effect that research projects such as these can have on a patient’s life.
Professor Thistlethwaite’s work on trialling cell therapies across a range of solid tumours for the first time was one of those highlighted to be pivotal in future research into cancer therapies.
“It was a pleasure to be involved in the exhibition which casts light on some really important areas of cancer research as well as telling patient’s own stories” Fiona Thistlethwaite, iMATCH lead.
The exhibition, ‘Cancer Revolution: Science, Innovation and Hope’ is running from the 22nd October –March 2022 at the Museum of Science and Industry Museum in Manchester.
