Science + Engineering... Conquering Cancer Together

On the Road Again

Koch Institute outreach has gone national! In April, the Koch Institute joined eight other MIT groups at the USA Science & Engineering Festival to raise awareness about MIT’s ground-breaking research and build excitement in STEM discoveries and careers. The KI display challenged more than 500 visitors to answer two questions—what does cancer look like, and how do we treat it—using iPhone microscopes and alginate beads, and investigate the grand experiment of what happens when biology and engineering come together to fight cancer.
