About the event

Cancer has become the third most likely cause of death worldwide. Presently cancer is killing 8.5 million people per year and by 2030, this number is estimated to reach 12 million.

One of the most serious obstacles facing scientists involved in the development and assessment of new anti-cancer drugs and therapies is the failure of preclinical cancer models able to predict, in a reliable way, whether a given drug will have anti-cancer activity and acceptable toxicity in humans. Most animal models are not representative of human situations and currently, more than 70-80% of cancer research is based on 2D models.

Leading Portuguese scientist Professor Rui L. Reis has been named as the 2017 winner of the IET Harvey Prize – a £350,000 research grant for the furtherance of research in medical, microwave, laser or radar engineering.

Professor Reis will give a lecture on his research at IET London: Savoy Place on 20 March 2018. The lecture is free to attend and will be followed by a networking drinks reception. Join us from 6pm to learn more about this fascinating work.
