Tenovus Cancer Care will be holding their first Lab Tour at Bangor University this April – Giving members of the public the opportunity to see and hear about some of the amazing research being funded by Tenovus here in North Wales.
Tenovus now spends around £1M on research each year both on laboratory research to help develop new treatments for cancer, and research in the community to help local people and their families. Currently the charity funds PhD studentships in Cardiff, Swansea and Bangor universities.
The charity has funded scientists and world class cancer research for over 50 years, who have contributed to discoveries that have helped treat and care for millions of cancer patients all around the world. For example, in 1975 researchers showed that a contraceptive pill could halt the growth of breast cancers, leading to the birth of Tamoxifen, which is now taken by millions of women worldwide.
The Lab Tour takes place at Bangor University on Tuesday 9 April 2019. If you would like to attend please register your interest by Tuesday 2nd April by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
