5th Annual Research Reception showcases research to supporters

We were delighted to welcome over 50 supporters to our evening research reception sharing the successes of our funded head and neck cancer research programmes.

The event was generously sponsored by our Vice-President Tony Matharu at his new hotel, Blue Orchid London Tower Suites overlooking The Tower of London. This was the hotel's first event and the team worked around the clock to ensure that the venue was ready in time.

During the evening we heard from Prof Arturo Sala, an expert in rare diseases who is undertaking some vital research into Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma at Brunel University in London.  One of the leading head and neck surgeons in the UK, robotic surgery expert Prof Vin Paleri shared his vision for the future of surgery and how the use of robot-assisted surgery reduces recovery time for patients.  To wrap up the presentations we heard from Prof Kevin Harrington about the advances in radiotherapy and how the use of drugs combined with radiotherapy is yielding some dramatic results in patients.

Please see all three presentations below from the event.  Please note that the presentation by Prof Vin Paleri contains footage of surgical procedures.
