Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK affecting 50,000 people every year. Although survival rates are increasing, 32 women still die of breast cancer every day. Hayley will discuss the reason why breast cancer is proving so difficult to treat and will introduce current research into this disease. She will also illustrate how taking a step back and learning about the basic biology of the normal breast could lead to better treatments in future. Come along and see why she thinks we need to get back to basics.

Free food will be provided.

About the speaker:

Hayley is a a second year PhD student with Christine Watson in the Department of Pathology on the Wellcome Trust four year Stem Cell Programme. Her PhD focuses on the problem of mammary gland lineages and I am working to identify both mammary gland stem cells and other populations of cells in the normal breast. She completed my Masters in Stem Cell Biology here in Cambridge and after receiving a Zoology degree at the University of Nottingham.
