CRIG research @ the movies
Upon request by the Foundation against Cancer, we brought some science to the 'Levensloop' event in Ghent (27-28 April 2019), to show to the visitors and teams of the event where the money for cancer research goes to. We decided to make short (2-3 minutes) movies in which CRIG researchers explain their work in layman's terms (in Dutch). After a successful preview on 'Levensloop', we now gradually release them via social media. And here, on our own 'cinema page', you can watch all released movies.
Big thank you to the people who contributed!
