Event description

Description

New technologies could mean the end of cancer. And sooner than you think.

The latest research suggests that, in the near future, treatments for cancer might involve modifying the human body's own immune system to target and destroy tumours. In addition, it may even be possible to develop immunisations for cancers.

Researchers at Southampton University Medical School are conducting world-leading research into this area of medicine lead by Professor Tim Elliott.

In this talk you will learn:

  • biological mechanisms by which cancers can be treated using the body's own immune system.
  • the state of current research into this field.
  • the trend and likely form of future cancer treatments.

Professor Tim Elliott has a Biochemistry degree from Oxford and was awarded a PhD from the University of Southampton with postdoctoral training at MIT. He held a professorship in immunology at Oxford before being appointed to the Chair of Experimental Oncology, School of Medicine, University of Southampton. He was Associate Dean (Research) for the Faculty of Medicine between 2005 and 2015. He has published over 130 papers in the field of molecular immunology, is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Biology and in 2014 he was elected to the Academy of Medical Sciences. His mechanistic studies have always benefited from an active interface with the physical sciences including collaborations with synthetic and computational chemistry and recently with Microsoft UK. It is a privilege to host him at UWE Glenside.

General Admission £3. Limited free spaces availabke for students. Lots of free parking.
