This entry is part 10 of 14 in the series That Cancer Conversation


In our new podcast series, That Cancer Conversation: One to One, we’re talking to the people who make Cancer Research UK what it is. 

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and in this first episode we’re hearing from Dr Laura Danielson, our research lead for children’s and young people’s cancer.  

Laura moved across the Atlantic to make sure her work had the best chance of helping patients. And, since arriving in the UK, she’s gone from testing a neuroblastoma treatment as one of our funded researchers to managing our entire research strategy for children’s and young people’s cancers. 

Here she takes us through everything she’s learned along the way, explaining how the people she’s met and the challenges she’s faced continue to drive her, and reflecting on what it means to work for a future where all children and young people can live longer, better lives, free from the fear of cancer. 

If you’d like to talk to someone, our nurses are available Monday to Friday 9-5pm on freephone 0808 800 4040. 

You can listen and subscribe to That Cancer Conversation for free on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts. 

And if you have a question you’d like us to answer or topic you want us to explore, you can send an email to [email protected] and tell us about your idea!
