Scientists from across Oncology and the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences set off on the 15 June on a six-day road-trip.

The aim: to take our science to places where people shop and give them a chance to explore what we do, without having to turn aside from their daily life.

 From Newbury to Bletchley; from Swindon to Aylesbury we set up our stall and invited people to find out how their taxes fund the research that will make a big difference to tomorrow’s patients.

The theme of this year’s trip was clinical trials; how we gather the critical evidence that proves our great science will deliver patient benefit in the clinic where it matters. 

Over 6 days we visited 6 towns and spoke to over 1000 people, all of whom found out about our work without having to make an effort to visit us. 

 Well done team!  Amazing effort from our scientists.
