We consider travelling wave solutions of a parabolic-hyperbolic system arising in a model for contact inhibition of cell growth. For certain parameter values the structure of the travelling waves strongly resembles that of the scalar Fisher-KPP equation. For other parameter regimes new phenomena occur.
