Science + Engineering... Conquering Cancer Together


Through a variety of outreach programs and initiatives, the Koch Institute strives to engage public audiences of all backgrounds in the challenges and advancements of current cancer research.

We regularly host Student Outreach Programs that bring middle school and high school classes into the Koch Institute for laboratory tours and hands-on learning.

Through our with/in/sight evening lecture series, we bring together expert speakers to discuss major challenges and promising breakthroughs in cancer treatment.

The Koch Institute Public Galleries on our first floor offer visitors a unique set of glimpses into cancer research through striking biomedical images, interactive exhibits, and a variety of other displays.

We invite students and adults alike to participate in our Community Outreach Events, bringing cutting-edge cancer research to life through interactive and immersive activities and programs.

Our ongoing series of Research Animations provides audiences on the web with fascinating and approachable videos profiling recent Koch Institute research projects.

Once a year, during the Cambridge Science Festival, we invite children and adults of all ages to participate in a fun, hands-on community event to celebrate the intersection of science and engineering with an eye toward new technologies for understanding and treating cancer.
