Speaker: Mr Henry Scowcroft, Cancer Research UK, UK
Join Professor Rob Jones, Professor of Clinical Cancer Research at the University of Glasgow and Chair of the NCRI Bladder & Renal Group, as he meets with Henry Scowcroft, author of the book Cross Everything, in this book club session. Henry is an experienced science writer with a Bachelor’s degree in biochemistry whose partner died of advanced bladder cancer in 2016. This experience led him to write the book as a way of finding some closure and comfort, whilst trying to learn more about the cancer that took his partner’s life too soon. The discussion will focus on Henry’s findings, and how these discoveries could potentially be utilised to care for current and future patients.
