World Cancer Day takes place on February 4 each year. Researchers at Ludwig Oxford and the wider NDM are trying to understand the epidemiology and potential causes of cancer, its effect on patient lives and outcomes, as well as the basic science underpinning the unregulated cell growth that is the hallmark of the disease. To mark World Cancer Day, NDM has asked some of our scientists - including Xin Lu - about their research.
