Knowing your enemy: dissecting and targeting cancers

Dr Michael White (Clinical Research Training Fellow)
Michael will discuss tumour heterogeneity, single cell sequencing and developing targeted therapies against cancers.

Cancer: finding the risk factors

Dr Kezia Gaitskell (Clinical Research Training Fellow)
The media often says that something is 'a risk factor for cancer' - but what kind of scientific evidence is behind that? Using examples from my research on ovarian cancer, I will explain how we can use data from big population studies to work out risk factors for cancer. I will also discuss how a knowledge of risk factors for different types of cancers may be able to help us understand where and how they develop.
