Debbie Fund researcher Dr Tim Fenton was at the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research. This year’s AACR meeting was entitled ‘Harnessing Breakthroughs – Targeting Cures’. It is the biggest conference dedicated to cancer research, bringing together around 18,000 delegates including researchers, patient advocates and representatives from biotech and pharma.
Dr. Fenton told us: “I presented a poster detailing our discovery of a mechanism by which cancer-causing mutations occur in the DNA of HPV-infected cells. It was also a great chance to catch up with ex-colleagues and to connect with other researchers working on HPV-associated cancer”.
