These talks aim to give a general introduction to cancer biology and medicine and all students and staff are welcome to attend.
We are returning to in-person presentation and attendance in the School of Clinical Medicine. The lectures will take place every Thursday from 9.30-10.30 in the William Harvey Lecture Theatre - this is the large lecture hall but there will be a limited capacity of 75 attendees to facilitate social distancing. Please observe the instructions to attendees and to leave the space of an empty seat between you and the next member of the audience.
The lecture series is also listed on the talks.cam website.
