In our new podcast series, That Cancer Conversation: One to One, we’re talking to the people who make Cancer Research UK what it is.
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and in this first episode we’re hearing from Dr Laura Danielson, our research lead for children’s and young people’s cancer.
Laura moved across the Atlantic to make sure her work had the best chance of helping patients. And, since arriving in the UK, she’s gone from testing a neuroblastoma treatment as one of our funded researchers to managing our entire research strategy for children’s and young people’s cancers.
Here she takes us through everything she’s learned along the way, explaining how the people she’s met and the challenges she’s faced continue to drive her, and reflecting on what it means to work for a future where all children and young people can live longer, better lives, free from the fear of cancer.
