Professor Stephen Dilworth delivers his Inaugural Professorial Lecture at Middlesex University.
The last 40 years have seen a dramatic increase in our fundamental understanding of the molecular details underlying disease, especially in the field of cancer. The research effort into cancer led to the development of many of the molecular techniques routinely used to analyse DNA, RNA and proteins in cells, and these have allowed the events that occur during the development of human cancers to be unravelled in detail. This increase in basic knowledge is now leading to the development of a startling array of targeted new drugs that are beginning to revolutionise the treatment and diagnosis of cancer. Using examples from my own research career, I will explore the essential role cancer causing viruses have played in this process, the therapies and diagnostic approaches that have developed from this pure research, and the outlook for the future.
The Lecture will preceded by light refreshments at 4.30pm and followed by a buffet reception, both on the 1st Floor Mezzanine in the Rickett Quadrangle, College Building.
There is no need to book your place in advance, please just turn up.
