Studies carried out by researchers at the University of Leicester led by Catrin Pritchard's research group.

Translation research has significantly improved the outcomes of breast cancer patients over the past few years.  From simple cell cultures to animal models, they have all been instrumental in translating breast cancer research from bench to bedside.

Congratulations to Constantinos Demetriou who won a poster prize at our Midlands 3Rs Symposium for his poster presentation on Replacing Animal Models in Drug Discovery.
