Michelle Mitchell on The Francis Crick Institute Cut + Paste exhibition

Michelle Mitchell shared the following on LinkedIn:

“It was wonderful to come together with some of our partners, supporters, and ambassadors, at The Francis Crick Institute Cut + Paste exhibition last night. Our vision of creating a world where everybody lives, longer, better lives, free from the fear of cancer wouldn’t be possible without their support and we’re extremely grateful. Together we are beating cancer.

We were also lucky to be joined by our fantastic speakers, Dr Gillian Farnie, Group Leader of the Cancer Research Horizons Team at The Crick who shared the drug discovery research Cancer Research UK (CRUK) funds, and one of our media volunteers, Mei-Ling who shared her personal experience of cancer.”
