Are you interested in a career in scientific research, stem cells or how new discoveries can shape the way we look at different types of cancer?

If you are, then come along to our inspiring talk from Dr Vivian Li, a Group Leader in the Stem Cells and Cancer Laboratory at the Francis Crick Institute.

Vivian is a developmental biologist working in cancer research. She looks at the stem cells in the human bowel and the causation behind the development of gastrointestinal cancers. She won a Future Leaders in Cancer Research prize for discovering a new way that a signalling glycoprotein, Wnt, is activated in bowel cancer.

The Francis Crick institute aims to understand why diseases develop and uses resulting discoveries to prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses such as cancer, stroke, heart disease, infections and neurodegenerative diseases.

Vivian will give us an insight into her career path and research, as well as how she came to where she is today. The event will consist of a 40 minute talk, followed by a 20 minute Q&A session.

Location: IOE Bedford Way (20)- 739 breakdown 1
Date: 18/03/19
Time: 17:00-18:00

We look forward to seeing you there!
