During the summer, the Lord Mayor of Belfast paid a visit to the Belfast Cancer Research UK (CR-UK) Centre to find out about the pioneering prostate cancer research taking place in the city.
During the visit he met Dr David Waugh, Acting Director of the Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology (CCRCB) and Professor Joe O’Sullivan. Dr Waugh is leading a CR-UK funded project to identify ways to improve radiotherapy for men with prostate cancer. He also works closely with Professor O’Sullivan to translate his research to the benefit of patients at the Northern Ireland Cancer Centre.
The Lord Mayor was also taken on a guided tour of the labs by Dr Stephen Walker.
