Tue 8 December 2020 - 19:00 to 20:00

This online taster event includes a live lecture from one of our inspirational research academics in biosciences. In this lecture Dr Fenton will give a basic introduction to cancer biology and will explain the concept of oncogenes. Dr Fenton will explain how identifying these genes and the functions they perform has enabled us to develop more targeted therapeutic approaches for cancer patients and how genetic testing of tumours is now used to determine treatment; an approach described as personalised, or precision medicine. At the end of the lecture Dr Fenton will be joined by a current student and you will get the chance to ask questions about the course and life at Kent.
