“We feel our work could have a huge impact for the public, as prostate cancer affects so many families, and we were determined to keep going throughout the lockdown.”
Professor Iain J McEwan, at the University of Aberdeen, is leading a project to explore new ways of attacking prostate cancer, using two sets of novel drugs to keep hormone therapy working for longer. Join our free video call at 6.30 p.m. on Tuesday 11th August to hear about his team’s pioneering research, how they plan to use a brand new drug to ‘lock’ the androgen receptor into place to stop it feeding prostate cancer, how they got through lockdown and what it’s like to get back into the lab.
The call will take place via the videoconferencing software Zoom. To sign up, please register here and we will send you details, including instructions on how to use Zoom, in advance of the call.
As the technology can only host a limited number of participants, places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
