Mobile phone game could help develop new cancer treatments

Cambridge is helping to lead the way in medical advances with the help of a new app for your phone or tablet launched by a leading cancer charity.

It comes on the day the World Health Organisation has predicted the number of cancer cases will reach 24 million a year by 2035 - but says half could be prevented.

The phone app comes in the form of a game which will help scientists in Cambridge to analyse gene data - and ultimately help to develop new treatments.
