ICPV Research Open Day


On 6th May 2017 we invited patient advocates from the charity Independent Cancer Patient Voice to the Manchester Cancer Research Centre to learn more about the research conducted by MBC.

Discussions lead by Dr Rob Clarke, Dr Ahmet Ucar and Dr Michelle Harvie allowed our visitors to ask questions and understand more about the role of nutrition and lifestyle in breast cancer, and how stem cells cause and progress the disease.

 

There was also the opportunity to learn some laboratory skills that our researchers use every day. The visiting patient advocates practiced loading western blots, which are used for identifying proteins, and using microscopes to look at tissue samples from humans and mice.

 

 

ICPV is a patient advocate group independent of established UK cancer charities and aware of the value of medical research to both public health and to the national economy. More information about them can be found here.
