Trustees of Essex Cancer Research were treated to a visit to the University’s School of Life Sciences. Hosted by Dr Greg Brooke and faculty, the Trustees gained insight into areas of cancer research currently undertaken at the university, including cancer genetics, cancer cell imaging, liquid biopsies for cancer detection, and the development of novel cancer therapeutics.

The University of Essex undertakes a remarkable breadth and depth of research, and the open collaboration between separate fields of research should be highly commended and has encouraged Essex Cancer Research to develop an association with Dr Brooke and his colleagues.

The Charity has accordingly extended an invitation to the University of Essex School of Life Sciences, to join the charity’s Research Advisory Board. Trustees are delighted that Dr Greg Brooke and Dr Andrea Mohr will be taking up these places.
