Thanks to advancements in medicine and biomedical research, we are diagnosing, treating, and curing cancer more effectively than ever before. But how much do you and I truly know about this disease? Where does it come from and how does it manifest? How does the treatment actually work? And, how do the answers to these questions help us to fight cancer?

Join Dr. Isabel Pires and Lucy Wiseman at Furleys & Co for a night of discovery into the human disease we call Cancer. 

The hallmarks of cancer and beyond

Lucy Wiseman (PhD Researcher in Biomedical Science)
We have all been affected by cancer in some way, but how many of us understand what cancer is? The 10 hallmarks of cancer detail what happens in the body during cancer development and spread, allowing scientists to develop new therapies and patients to understand their diagnosis and be proactive in their treatment.

Radiotherapy: from DNA damage to AI

Dr Isabel Pires (Senior Lecture in Biomedical Science )
You have very likely heard about radiotherapy as a cancer treatment, but do you know how it works? What happens when it stops working? And what can be done to overcome this? This is a story that starts with damage to DNA and cell death (or lack of!) and ends up with new treatment approaches and using AI to improve patient treatment.
