This episode, we’re joined by Sigourney Bell, a researcher at the University of Cambridge, whose work looks to find new treatments for supratentorial ependymoma, a rare children’s brain cancer.

Outside of the lab, Sigourney is the co-founder of Black in Cancer, a global organisation that aims to strengthen the network between Black people in the cancer space whilst highlighting Black excellence in cancer research and medicine.

During Black History Month, Black in Cancer runs a week of events across various social media platforms and organises webinars to help educate researchers, medical experts, and those affected by cancer.

We hear about what the challenges are of working on a rare children’s cancer, find out what led to the founding of Black in Cancer, and learn what’s on the agenda from October 10th – 15th for Black in Cancer Week 2021.
