What is cancer – the deadly disease that affects the lives of millions of people around the world each year? And… why do some people get it, and others not?
UNSW cancer researcher A/Prof Darren Saunders says cancer is one of the greatest health challenges of our time. There is so much more to do to advance prevention, treatment and cure this deadly disease.
This short video clip would fit well with Biological Sciences for Years 8 and 10 when discussing cell function and mutation. The importance of future technology and development of STEM in the Medical sector could also be discussed here.
