Creating cancer treatments: designing and trialling new medicines

Our ‘creating cancer treatments’ video and resource pack allows students to explore how our researchers discover new cancer drugs and develop them for patients.

It includes a 10-minute video presented by ICR researchers, a suite of classroom activities to support students’ learning, and a lesson-style presentation containing learning objectives and answers to the activities.

This resource has been designed to support the GCSE science curriculum in the areas of ‘how medicines are made’, ‘clinical trials’, ‘cancer’ and ‘chemical analysis’. It goes beyond the content of the curriculum, introducing new concepts involved in the creation of new treatments to enrich learning and facilitate a deeper understanding of the subject.

The video and resource pack are freely available to watch and download.
