Leading experts from the Cardiff China Medical Research Collaborative (CCMRC), Cardiff University, InuCyte and Swansea University have presented at recent events to enhance understanding of the latest cancer research and innovative technologies.

Dr Andrew Sanders, Research Fellow, CCMRC, presented ‘Understanding the ways by which cancers spread’ at Cancer Research Wales’ (CRW) ‘Science Cafe;’ an event series which marks CRW’s 50th anniversary of funding world-class research in Wales. Dr Sanders explained how CCMRC’s CRW funded project is exploring new mechanisms to target cancer spread or metastasis; a key contributor to cancer mortality and morbidity.

It is an honour to talk about the cutting-edge research funded by CRW. These pan-Wales events provide a forum to raise public awareness through informative talks and interactive exhibitions by facilitating discussion with researchers.
