The Larmor Society presents our final talk of term from an inspiring speaker, Dr Sarah Bohndiek. As for all of our talks, all colleges and disciplines are welcome, free of charge, with free wine and refreshments available before and after.

TALK ABSTRACT : In order to detect and fight cancer, we must be able to distinguish cancerous cells from healthy cells. One way to do this is to look metabolism, since metabolism is hugely different in cancerous cells relative to healthy cells.

The Bohndiek lab utilises biological, physical and engineering strategies to develop technology to visualise metabolic traits of cancers. Such technologies allow both detection of cancer and further our understanding of tumorigenesis.

Dr Bohndiek will discuss both her exciting research and touch upon her career path that has resulted in her leading labs in both the Physics department and in the CRUK Institute.
