Meet the CRUK Cambridge Centre Scientific Advisory Board

The new joint CRUK Cambridge Centre and Institute SAB has the following members:

Douglas Fearon Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

Ed Harlow Harvard Medical School

Johanna Joyce University of Lausanne

Peter Jones (Chair) Van Andel Research Institute, Michigan

Scott Lowe Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

Charles J Sherr St Jude Children’s Research Hospital

Zena Werb University of California, San Francisco

The SAB will be visiting Cambridge annually to assess our progress and advise us on our research strategy and because they are covering both the Centre and Institute they will alternate their focus each year. For their first visit this October they will be focusing on the Institute, during a two-day retreat that is taking place at the CRUK Cambridge Institute on 18–19 October. The programme for the retreat includes a special session to introduce the SAB to the work of the Centre, with talks (see below), followed by refreshments so the SAB will have an opportunity to meet members of the Centre:
