Drugs are one of the cornerstones in cancer treatment. In our last Hangout, we talked about the drug discovery process, and what makes a good medicine (if you missed it, you can watch it here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXNeWkbVaGE). But what are the next steps? How do we actually get these new treatments into patients? How long will it before we know whether a treatment is working? And what is it like for a patient to be on a clinical trial?

Join us as we explore this complex topic with a Google Hangout on Air, featuring Dr Emma Dean and Diane Brooks. Emma is a Medical Oncologist and Clinical Senior Lecturer at the University of Manchester, and Diane is a patient currently undergoing treatment for breast cancer.

This hangout will be broadcast on 20 July 2016 at 3.30 PM, and hosted by Dr Emma Smith and Dr Buddhini Samarasinghe. You can watch the broadcast live, or catch up afterwards on YouTube. Join the conversation using #CRUKHangout, or leave your questions on this event page.
