Hidden behind their microscopes or compouter screens are scientists working on research projects about pediatric oncology. Only if we understand the nature of nature, what it is and what it looks like, we can find out how to combat is.
Too complex? No worries!
Scientific research seems complex and unaccesible untill somebody explains it to you. Our researchers are happy to talk about their projects and explain to you what keeps them busy every day.
We invite parents and loved ones of children who have cancer, or have had cancer, to come to our thematic Science Nights, which we organize in dialogue with the VOKK and client council. Join us one night or visit all four of them. Listen to the stories and meet our researchers. The research of today will shape the care of tomorrow.
The presentations will be in Dutch.
