On Thursday 1st June I was asked to present to a group of incredible volunteers for Cancer Research UK. Each year the Royal Family hosts garden parties at Buckingham Palace to show their appreciation for people who have made a positive impact in their community. It is a great honour to be invited. This year CRUK was allowed to send a small number of volunteers to the party to say thank you for being so great! I went to a pre-party gathering in the CRUK headquarters in Angel where I did a brief presentation about how I came to be in London, why I study cancer and the background to my project.
It was a pleasure to meet these incredible women and to chat to them about my work! Please enjoy watching the video of my presentation.
Warning: I say "em" A LOT! Also I exaggerated the number of women participating in the EPIC study - it's half a million.

Thank you to Becky from CRUK for videoing this for me! 😊😊😊
