RIOT London is pleased to announce that RIOT team member Emma Ali, a 2nd year medical student at the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry, with an interest in cancer research will be posting a monthly blog on a variety of cancer research related topics.
Hello readers. Every month, I will be writing a new article explaining a specific type of cancer associated with a particular organ, such as the uterus. I focus on explaining new and relevant research in cancer care for that chosen malignancy by introducing and building upon the anatomy and physiology needed to understand some of the more detailed scientific findings. The first organ system to be highlighted is the female reproductive system, where we will go through how cancer commonly affects different structures within it. I hope that these articles help explain how scientists in the lab and in clinics are transforming the care that physicians provide to patients at the bedside.
