Future leaders in cancer research are visiting Thetford this week as part of a roadshow to give people more information about the deadly disease.
Scientists from Norwich Research Park at the University of East Anglia will visit Sainsbury's, Thetford on July 14 as part of the Big C's 'research roadshow', which has been touring Norfolk over the past couple of months.
The aim of the event is to give people the opportunity to learn more about cancer and to raise awareness of the first-class local research taking place in the fight against the disease.
Displays will explore answers to frequent questions such as 'how do we get cancer?' 'what does cancer look like?' and 'will there ever be a cure?'
To help people further understand how cells are studied, there will also be the chance to view your own cheek cells under a microscope.

Nikki Morris, deputy chief executive at Big C, said: 'The researchers have enjoyed leaving their labs and going 'on tour' to open discussions about cancer with people across Norfolk.
'It's also a wonderful opportunity for the public to discover more about the world-leading cancer research projects that are taking place on our doorstep and to see first-hand the significant difference made by those that fundraise on our behalf.'
