Dr Oliver Pearce explains his synthetic tumour project to Nick in our Centre for Cancer & Inflammation


We recently welcomed BBC Radio 1's breakfast presenter Nick Grimshaw to our labs, as part of Radio 1 and 1Xtra's #1millionhours campaign, which aims to encourage people to continue supporting research charities.

Donations of time as well as money are vital for the continued funding of basic, translational and clinical research - all major focuses here at the Cancer Research UK Barts Centre.

Nick visited our Centres for Cancer & Inflammation and Haemato-Oncology, speaking to researchers Oliver Pearce and Ana Rio-Machin about their work.

He also toured our Tissue Bank facility, where Tissue Acquisition Officer Jacqui Bamforth explained the value of human cancer tissue samples in our work.

See the full video, which links has further information about the campaign and perspectives from people living with cancer, over on BBC Newsbeat.
