Cafe MED - Breast cancer: distinguishing tigers from pussycats


  • -


Bringing together the public, researchers and clinicians.

Speakers: Professor Valerie Speirs (Chair in Molecular Oncology, University of Aberdeen) and Mr Yazan Masannat (Consultant Oncoplastic Breast Surgeon, NHS Grampian)

An unintended consequence of national breast screening programmes is the increase in the detection of pre-invasive breast cancers, called DCIS. Join us to hear how this presents challenges for doctors and how scientists are tacking this in the laboratory.

Cafe MED are informal talks bringing together the public, researchers and clinicians, and are accessible to all.
