The hugely successful Relay For Life is back again in 2019.
We are pleased to inform that we will be having its Launch Event, one year ahead of the
Relay For Life 2019 itself, with a small reception on Thursday 27 September 2018 at 7pm
at the Mediterranean Rowing Club.
There we will be revealing the date for Relay For Life 2019 and we are also very pleased
to announce that Dr Ana Rio-Machin will be present as our Guest Speaker. Ana was here
last November telling us about her work for Cancer Research UK and will be able to
update us on further research advancements within her field.
Dr Ana Rio-Machin is a biomedical researcher focusing on blood cancer. She graduated in
Biology and Biochemistry at the University of Salamanca and received her Masters in
Molecular Biomedicine at Autonomous University of Madrid. She completed a PhD
programme at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO), working on cancers
that affect the blood and lymph system.
Since 2015, Ana has worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for Haemato-
Oncology at Barts Cancer Institute in London, part of Queen Mary University of London,
where her research focuses on genetic mutations in patients’ DNA that lead to the
development of inherited acute myeloid leukaemia (AML), an aggressive rare blood
cancer which affects multiple members of the same family. She has authored several
research articles and is a champion for sharing cancer research with the public in an
understandable and down to earth manner.
