Tumour Takedown is an innovative new smartphone app, designed by Cancer Research UK as part of a collaboration with innovators at Queen Mary University of London, that uses a variety of engaging and interactive interfaces to help people learn about how cancer treatments work.

The app, available for free download for both the iOS and Android platforms, lets you learn about the different kinds of cell types that make up a tumor. Not only can you learn about how new cancer treatments work, you can even construct a virtual tumor and figure out the best way to destroy it.

The Tumour Takedown app is truly a wonderful example of how smartphone app innovation, graphic media technology and gamification can join hands to further education in the area of medicine and disease.
