This blog is co-written by three of Cancer Research UK’s professional science communicators, Henry Scowcroft, Kat Arney and Oliver Childs.
Our aim is to cover the latest cancer research, including that funded by the charity. We’ll also be highlighting other relevant material, debunking myths and media scares, and providing links to other helpful resources.
Please do leave comments. The whole purpose of this blog is to engage in a dialogue about cancer research – and consequently it’s a bit of a learning curve for the three of us, and for the charity – any feedback you can give us to make the blog better is very welcome. In order to keep the discussion fresh, we now automatically close comments on posts after 6 months.
By commenting on this blog, you are agreeing to abide by our Terms & Conditions. We appreciate that this is a fairly dry bit of legalese, but it’s important. So please give them a read. The key points are:
- Please don’t post anything inappropriate that may upset, harass or embarrass any other person, or break any law
- Please don’t post any medical advice on this blog, or accept any medical advice from other users
- You can complain about any comments that break the terms and conditions by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We will monitor this inbox constantly during office hours, and check it over the weekend. We will respond to or act on all complaints within 48 hours
- Although we will do our utmost to avoid this, Cancer Research UK reserves the right to edit, delete, move or otherwise alter comments posted by users.
- We only require you to leave an email address so that we can contact you about the discussion on the blog should the need arise. We will not add your email address to any marketing or fundraising mailing list without asking you first.
We hope you enjoy reading the blog.
Henry, Kat and Olly
