Vaccines to Prevent & Treat Cancer

This event has passed

Lecture/Ordinary Meeting

Virus infections are responsible for about one in five humabn cancers. In his lecture Professor Frazer discussed how this knowledge has been used to develop vaccines for the prevention of cervical cancer, and how they have been shown to be effective. The challenge is to see them used in the developing world, where the majority of cervical cancers occur.

This lecture was in association with the Scottish Cancer Foundation, supported by The Cruden Foundation.
