Pandemic update – MSc Conference and New Website

The commitments of the pandemic made it harder to dedicate research to cancer, and studies are already ongoing to assess the impact of the disruption on cancer care, with Essex’s hospitals contributing to this effort. Despite this, ECR’s John Bruce and Oksana Hoile attended the School of Life Sciences Cancer Biology MSc conference over Zoom in July 2021 to watch presentations by students on their research.

The charity has also spent this time building resources to prepare for a relaunch and a new website, to act as a hub for information and fundraising for local patient-centred cancer research, which will take priority as we move past the pandemic. Updates on this effort, alongside details of fundraising opportunities, will be available soon. Thank you for your patience at this time.
