Event details

The fourth event in our health and healthcare public lecture series took place on Wednesday 5 October 2016.

This event focused on cancer research and aftercare, an area in which the University is conducting pioneering research, particularly in the field of Immunology.

Our discoveries are moving from the laboratory into clinical trials, where they are already making a world of difference to people with cancer.

Our research doesn’t stop with finding the cure: we are also developing ways to improve the quality of patients’ lives after they have been treated for cancer.
