Take a look behind the scenes of Oncology in the LUMC

Oncology, the study of cancer, is an important spearhead for LUMC. LUMC provides specialised patient care in oncology, but also develops innovative cancer research. Oncology, or cancer: it is not an easy subject. Many of us will come into contact with it at some point in our lives; either personally, or through friends or family.

Today, you can playfully find out what is happening in this field at LUMC. Young clinicians and researchers from LUMC will show you their work today. Through interactive activities and demonstrations you can learn more about research, prevention and dealing with oncology. Talk to the experts, they are here for you!


  • Escape game about cancer and immunology
  • Workshop on image guided surgery
  • Game: help the scientist determine which bacteria can play a role in cancer
  • Quiz about oncology
