As your group is registered for affiliate or partner level support, I wanted to make sure you know about  two public research events coming up that you might be interested in. These events – one in London and one in Manchester - are to celebrate the Movember Centres of Excellence, and how they’ll be changing the future of prostate cancer research over the next few years. Please find the details below, as well as what you need to do if you or any of your group members would like to attend.

Friday 19 September, 5 – 9pm, Education Centre, Royal Geographic Society, 1 Kensington Gore, London SW7 2AR.

On Friday 19 September, Professor Johann de Bono will be talking about his work as part of the London Movember Centres of Excellence. Professor de Bono’s distinguished career has been built around developing new therapies for advanced cancer patients, including for men with advanced prostate cancer. At this event, he’ll talk about the work that he and the whole team of scientists and doctors involved in the London Movember Centre of Excellence will be doing to bring laboratory discoveries into the clinic over the next five years.
