On Friday 6.10. our department participated in the Reseachers´ Night. We had prepared a workshop for the visitors on the topic of the Secret of the Tumor Cell. We talked about what must gradually happen in a cell in order for it to turn into a tumor cell.
We had prepared a small quiz with rewards for the participants, and they could also try to "figure out" the consequences of changing a single "letter" in our DNA. Those interested could view tumor cells under a microscope and peek under the hood of the work of a pathologist who evaluates the microscopic image of a tumor.
And last but not least, we talked about the possibilities of modern oncology and about innovative approaches in diagnosis and treatment.
