      It’s what we work on everyday! I’m working on killing some breast cancer cells at the very moment! Cancer’s tricky but everyday scientists are trying to come up with more clever ways to bring it down! Stay tuned- in the future there will be lots of excitement in the battle against cancer~

      It won’t be me doing this as I don’t work on cancer research, I work on antibiotics, which is a medicine you may well have taken yourself, and is used to treat bacteria infections.

      I don’t work in the area of cancer research but I am developing a technology that could hopefully be used by scientists who do cancer research so hopefully my work will play a small part. Maybe in the future I can do some research that’s more related to cancer as this is a really interesting and important area.
