10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. | MIT North Court

Take a swing at one of humanity’s biggest biomedical challenges and learn about the ins and outs of studying cancer. Can you navigate the extracellular matrix or target your nanoparticle to double eagle a tumor? This pop-up mini golf course features hazards like circulating tumor cells, immune checkpoints, and signaling cascades. Created by the scientists and engineers of MIT’s cancer research community, this action-packed course is educational fun for the “hole” family. Join us on the green for putting, prizes, and more. View photos or share your experience on Facebook.

Event is free; no pre-registration required. Located in the North Court behind MIT's Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research, 500 Main Street in Cambridge. Presented as part of the annual Cambridge Science Festival with event-specific support from Blueprint Medicines.
