Why haven't we cured cancer yet?

A look at stimuli-responsive microbubbles and how they are revolutionising cancer treatment.

Despite extraordinary advances in cancer treatment over the past century, the medical profession still quotes patient survival in terms of 3 to 5 years. Complete remission of the disease remains the exception and the impact of new treatments has been highly diverse.

Cancer still affects 1 in 3 of us, so what are we going to do about it?

Oxford University’s Professor Eleanor Stride believes that ‘stimuli-responsive’ particles, delivering medicine directly to the target site could be the answer. In this year’s first Future Science EngTalk, she’ll introduce her work with ‘microbubbles’, the challenges of new drug delivery strategies and their potential for improving treatment of major diseases such as cancer or stroke.

You’ll also hear a 10-minute insight from Dr Jack Kreindler, Founder of The Centre for Health and Human Performance. Is a dollar a day all it takes for us to live to 100?

Tickets to this exciting evening are free, but expected to go fast!
