Long Night of Children's Cancer Research
Our annual open door event aims at offering non-professionals, sponsors and decision makers the chance to explore the CCRI and to connect with scientists and a broad set of intriguing research technologies. The main purpose of this venue is to raise public awareness for children’s cancer research and education through easy-to-follow lectures and hands-on experiments.
Much of the research at the CCRI is highly interdisciplinary and researchers come from a wide variety of scientific backgrounds. Accordingly, the range of theoretical approaches and experimental techniques used by the individual groups is very large. To get a better grasp on the latest CCRI science, selected talks by CCRI group leaders provided both basic information on children’s cancer research and novel methods.

What happens in a tumour cell?
How do they behave in a body?
How can we fight malign tumour cells?
These and many other questions are answered at our annual CCRI open day, the so-called “Lange Nacht der Kinderkrebsforschung” ("Long Night of Children's Cancer Research"), under the auspices of the Austrian Federal President Dr. Heinz Fischer.
