September’s podcast is jam-packed with all the latest news and interviews from Cancer Research UK.

Our roving reporter Anna Lacey takes a trip to a very special building site in darkest Hertfordshire – it’s the site of our new £20 million Biotherapeutics Development unit, which will produce biological treatments for clinical trials.

We also chat to TV new anchor Nicholas Owen, who’s a tireless supporter of the charity as well as a kidney cancer survivor. He’s got a lot to say about the important of early diagnosis – and is there a plot at his local Cancer Research UK to sell his own ties back to him?

Finally, we hear about a rather unusual clinical trial called Quartz, for people with lung cancer that has spread to the brain. Instead of testing a new drug or therapy, it’s finding out if the best treatment is actually no treatment. Sounds intriguing!
