Starting in 30 mins time…Hope you can join us as we chat to two childhood cancer specialists on how we’re tackling cancer in kids and teens!

Originally shared by Science on Google+

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. She is also the Director of the Cancer research UK Clinical Trials Unit, which is one of the largest cancer trials units in the UK. Her research focuses on the development of new therapies for childhood leukaemias. Richard is a world renowned expert in childhood brain tumours, and is the new director of the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute. He has led international efforts that have dramatically advanced our understanding of the biology of several common childhood brain tumours.

 

This HOA will be hosted by Dr Buddhini Samarasinghe and Dr Kat Arney  You can tune in on Wednesday September 23rd at 4 PM UK time. The hangout will be available for viewing on our YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/ScienceHangouts) after the event.

  1. Stop feeding kids with GMO and other artificially manipulated  and overprocessed food..


    We all need clean air and water and among other “activities” must  stop building  cell towers..


     Our industrial mode of life  effects  precious life,  not only  human, but all kinds of forms of life  that is struggling to our survive artificially  “created” human-monstrosity.  (just naming a few of  them living  in the cities: birds, bees, plants, pets..) 


    Hope some day sciences will become more PROFESSIONAL , means  Independent from being controlled  by  their “sponsoring” and shamelessly  ignorant commercial mass producers, and governments. Hopefully  some day researchers will begin to learn, as everyone   in all schools,  how to take Full Responsibility for what we do in labs..  How much harm we humans cause to people, and nature??  Our ultimate teacher  that does not belong to any human society is Nature but we do still not understand its Laws.


    The  lab and other research “discoveries” are not just  “exciting” advertisement and  popculture’s entertainment.  True sciences shall be protected from money manipulations.
