A ‘pill on a string’ developed by researchers at the University of Cambridge could help doctors detect oesophageal cancer – cancer of the gullet – at an early stage, helping them overcome the problem of wide variation between biopsies.
Cambridge Shorts allows University of Cambridge researchers to work with artists and filmmakers to make films that are creative accessible and engaging. Researchers at an early stage of their career were selected through a competitive application process and funded to commission a filmmaker to make a short film about their research. Films were put together through a process of discussion and exchange of ideas to ensure both the integrity of the research was maintained and that ideas and themes were explored creatively and imaginatively.
