In April’s podcast we find out about cancer research in Northern Ireland, as the charity unveils the latest Cancer Research UK Centre in Belfast. Professor Dennis McCance explains more about the centre’s strengths, and what they hope to achieve over the coming years.

Summer is nearly here (hooray!) but excessive sunbathing and sunbed use is causing a steep rise in the number of cases of malignant melanoma, particularly among young women. We find out more about the dangers of sunburn and sunbeds, including one woman’s personal story of melanoma.

Plus, we hear how the latest advances in nanotechnology could pave the way for more effective, targeted treatments for cancer.
