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.

Our research is finding ways to tackle cancer:
Our campaign to fund the first cancer immunology centre in the UK where we will be able to explore new areas and develop lifesaving drugs. Help us achieve this by making a donation.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK. Our researchers are examining inherited high-risk genes in order to tackle genetic breast cancer.
Our researchers have discovered a potential way of stopping one of the most agressive types of brain tumour from spreading.
