Catching up with cancer on The Naked Scientists

Catching up with cancer on The Naked Scientists

As a nod to the NCRI Cancer Conference, this week’s Naked Scientists podcast is all about cancer, co-presented by Kat live from the conference.

As well as the latest news, the show features interviews with Cancer Research UK’s Professor Charles Coombes and Dr John Stingl, and the lowdown on proton radiotherapy from Professor Karen Kirkby.
