This year for the first time the Nuffield Department of Medicine was a partner of the Cheltenham Science Festival, one of the biggest and most popular science festivals in the country.

6 Ludwig Oxford Researchers pose by the stall at the Cheltanham FestivalBenjamin Schuster-Böckler, Alice Neal, Jingyi Ma, Katrin Bagola and Martin Cusack ran the NDM stall in the Discover zone on Saturday 7th June.

The stall saw roughly 1000 visitors over the course of the day with activities including making cells out of air dough, looking at tumours down a microscope and a cancer card game to keep visitors of all ages entertained.

The day was lots of fun for all involved and feedback from the parent of one girl aged 8 was that "making a cell with the Ludwig team was her favourite part of the whole festival".
