Applications now open for Cancer Uncovered Transition Year Week

Cancer Uncovered is a creative science TY week at Science Gallery Dublin, organised by researchers from Trinity College Dublin. It will be a fun week that will involve learning about cancer biology, and using that information for creative outputs such as art and drama!

TY students will be mentored in the mornings about cancer biology, and then facilitated to express this biological information in a creative output by a creative mentor. If you are interested in animation, theatre or print and want to find out more about biology and cancer then this is the week for you.
