Cancer Research Prize

Story supplied by LU Press Office

Dr Frank Martin, lecturer in Molecular Carcinogenesis, and Professor Trevor McMillan, Peel Professor of Cancer Biology, were part of a research team awarded the Brian Booth Oncology Research Prize.

The prize was established by the Rosemere Cancer Foundation with funds donated in memory of Brian Booth, former chairman of the Lancashire Teaching Hospitals Trust, who died unexpectedly last year.

The two-year study was a collaboration between Urology Specialist Registrar Dr. Ragavan, Mr. Matenhelia (Consultant Urologist) and Dr. Andy Hindley (Consultant Oncologist) based at Royal Preston Hospital and Dr. Frank Martin (Lecturer in Molecular Carcinogenesis) and Professor Trevor McMillan (Peel Professor of Cancer Biology) of Lancaster University.

The winning research project aimed to identify the triggers which may prompt the development of prostate cancer in some men. It also sought to examine lifestyle factors in relation to the patient and their extended family in order to understand more about prostate cancer and its possible similarities to other cancers.
