7pm – Johnston Central Library, Cavan

Cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide, with the number

 of cases expected to rise to approximately 22 million in the next two decades. In Ireland, someone is diagnosed with cancer every three minutes, and it is expected that 1 in 2 people will develop cancer during their lifetime. Conventional cancer therapy has many limitations, and in recent years various nano technologies have been developed in an attempt to provide more effective and safer cancer treatments. Melissa Tutty, MSc, from the School of Medicine Trinity College Dublin, will give this talk on these therapies.
