Professor returns to SJD with inspirational talk on medical science

Former Sir John Deane's Sixth Form College student, Professor Ian Prior, returned to the College on Wednesday to deliver an inspirational talk on cutting edge medical research. 

Ian is a Professor of Molecular Oncology at the University of Liverpool’s North West Cancer Research Centre, working at the forefront of developing new cures for cancers.

Students learnt about the biology of cancer development and what research is being done in the quest for new cures. He also gave them advice on how to pursue a career in medical research.

His talks have become a much anticipated annual event, with Ian having now visited the College for the past four years.
