Origami DNA Activity: Collaboration with Black in Cancer

This month we have teamed up with the fantastic organisation Black in Cancer, who strengthen networks and highlight Black excellence in cancer research and medicine.
 

Dr Julia Morris, ambassador for Black in Cancer, has created a short video on how to create your very own origami DNA model at home. 

All you need is a piece of A4 paper and a ruler!

Check out the video below.
 
During the video Julia tells us more about DNA changes in cancer and what can cause the genetic changes that lead to cancer development.
 
We hope you enjoy the activity. Make sure to share pictures of your origami models with us on social media!
