Please note that the event is on Wednesday and not the usual Tuesday!

Breast Cancer is the most common cancer in the UK affecting 50,000 women and 300 men every year. Although survival rates are increasing 32 women still die of breast cancer every day. Despite large fundraising schemes and an intensive research effort this cancer remains extremely difficult to treat. Hayley Frend (Deoartment of Pathology) will discuss why this is and introduce current research into the disease. She will also discuss the importance of learning about the basic biology of the breast in order to develop better treatments and why she thinks we need to get back to basics

Come along for informal science, drinks and chat. This event is sponsored by the Medical Research Council.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
