“Today is World Cancer Research Day! Research is essential in developing new treatments for different types of cancer and keeping our loved ones going. Today we celebrate the scientists, trial participants and everyone else that goes into creating new cancer treatments!
Covid-19 has put on hold and cancelled cancer research around the world, we want to remind everyone of the importance of continued research into treating and preventing cancer.
Vital, lifesaving research goes on around us every day, changing the lives of people with cancer. In Cardiff, Professor Awen Gallimore is researching immunotheraphy related to special blood vessels which can help cancer-fighting immune cells effectively attack tumours: https://www.cancerimmunology.co.uk/
