In this month’s podcast, we take a look at Cancer Research UK’s new stratified medicine initiative, aiming to focus the power of the genetic revolution on cancer. We find out what the project is all about, how it will work, and  – importantly – how soon it might be rolled out across the UK.

Plus we’ve got the latest news from the world of cancer research. We reveal how nearly a thousand lives could be saved from breast cancer every year, discover why the caps on the ends of chromosomes could lead to a test for leukaemia, and peer behind the headlines about a new breast cancer vaccine.
