Imperial Festival 2016

On 7/8th May 2016, CMBL presented a stand at the Imperial Festival, a large event with many interactive exhibitions, demonstrations and talks. We exhibited our ideas for a novel microfluidic device for early detection of pancreatic cancer, currently in development in our lab. We had multiple demonstrations, posters and videos as part of our exhibit, with most CMBL members involved in speaking to over 2000 children and adults interested in our stand.
