  • Professor Rakesh Jain explaining why drugs designed to cut of the blood supply to cancers may not work in the way we think they do
  • Dr Jane Cope talking about this year’s bumper spend on cancer research by the NCRI’s partner organisations, and how to address the problem of under-researched cancer types
  • Professor Michel Coleman discussing whether the UK really is the “sick man of Europe” when it comes to cancer survival
