We are delighted to announce that Dr Ranjit Manchanda of the Barts Cancer Institute Centre for Experimental Cancer Medicine will give a seminar for our programme on 21st May. Dr Manchanda’s main research interests are:

- Risk prediction, screening and prevention of ovarian and endometrial cancer - Population based approach(es) to genetic testing for risk stratification and cancer prevention - Targeted surgical approaches for prevention of gynaecological cancer - Familial gynaecological cancer He and his team recently published an article in Journal of the National Cancer Institute suggesting that screening the entire population for breast and ovarian cancer gene mutations, as opposed to just those at high-risk of carrying this mutation, is cost effective and could prevent more ovarian and breast cancers than the current approach.
