How do we tackle cancer in kids and teens? What are the differences between children’s cancers and adult’s cancers? What are the big research challenges we face at the moment? Join us for a Cancer Research UK and Science on Google+ Hangout on Air as we speak to Professor Pamela Kearns and Professor +Richard Gilbertson about childhood cancers.

Pam is a Professor of Clinical Paediatric Oncology at the University of Birmingham.

  1. Bryce Ross BRAVO 🙂 no science is needed for that, but we do need sober thinking.  One of the most important steps would be   to stop being brainless, manipulated consumers!!


     GMO and other massproduced “foods” and medications must be wiped clean from the planet earth- (would not be easy)   GMO and other manipulated and overprocessed foods is the most collossal industrial  crime of the century, incomparable in its size to any bloody psychotic random  killing.. by  isis..


    Hopefully an internet will eventually help people learn  about what they consume – and get that knowledge  Not from  commercial labels and ads.


    Cheers!
