LIVE Q&A | Creating a Living Biobank for Ovarian Cancer to Develop New Therapies | 18:30 (UK time), 10 May 2021.

Professor Stephen Taylor – Manchester Cancer Research Centre LIVE streaming at YouTube 18:30 (UK time), 10 May 2021. Summary: For 15 years, I studied the intricacies of how human cells divide (mitosis) in order to make new cells, how this goes wrong when cells become cancerous and how to sensitise cancer cells to anti-mitotic chemotherapy drugs. All of this work took place using cancer cell lines – cancer cells that keep dividing over very long periods of time in a flask – which has been very informative, but unfortunately they often do not reflect the original tumour or have limited associated… Read More »LIVE Q&A | Creating a Living Biobank for Ovarian Cancer to Develop New Therapies | 18:30 (UK time), 10 May 2021.

A University of Manchester Study on Primary Care Services: Participants Needed

A University of Manchester study on continuity of care is looking for members for its Patient and Public Involvement group. We are a team of researchers in The University of Manchester Division of Pharmacy and Optometry and the Institute of Health Policy and Organisation. Changes to how primary care services are delivered are happening that aim to improve patients’ access to a greater range of services. However, we don’t know what impact these changes will have on continuity of care for patients e.g. whether they will affect their ability to see the same clinician if you want or need to.… Read More »A University of Manchester Study on Primary Care Services: Participants Needed
