Science Museum Group Logo

The Science Museum Group, in partnership with Cancer Research UK, is developing a unique exhibition which will take visitors on a journey into the scientific and social history of cancer research. We’re looking for people to attend a focus group to share ideas on our initial concepts to help shape the direction of the exhibition.

About this opportunity:

The prestigious Science Museum Group is developing a free, temporary exhibition about cancer research which will encourage visitors to rethink what they know about cancer and explore how research is transforming what it means to ‘cure’ cancer. This exhibition will open in 2021 and will take place at two sites – The Science Museum, London, and Science and Industry Museum, Manchester.

We’d like to invite a few people to take part in an informal group discussion to hear what you’d want to see from an exhibition on this topic and for you to give feedback on our initial concepts and ideas. In turn, you’ll help us to shape our future direction and make sure that the exhibition is sensitive to the perspectives of people affected by cancer.
