    08.15 - 09.00 Monday & Tuesday morningBT Convention Centre, Liverpool

    For those of you attending this year's NCRI conference in Liverpool, I will be running workshops on Monday and Tuesday morning to explain and unravel the scientific content of each day's programme.

    My workshops are for people who plan to attend the day's lectures whilst fearing that they won’t understand the relevant scientific concepts.

    My workshops will be tailored according to the topics of the plenary sessions at this year's conference.

    Similar to previous years’ workshops, I will use diagrams and illustrations to provide clear, easy-to-understand explanations of complicated biological concepts.

    The workshops are geared towards non-scientists, such as doctors, nurses, trials staff and patients who’d like to get the most out of this year’s conference.

    I have partnered with Cancer Research UK to create a FREE online course on the science behind new cancer treatments.

    The course is hosted on the FutureLearn website and lasts 5 weeks. Each week there are science videos from me, plus lots of articles and interviews with doctors, nurses and patients.

    The course is ideal for anyone who wants to understand targeted cancer treatments in more depth and gain skills in explaining these treatments to patients and colleagues.
