QUB cancer research boost

Queen's University has received a £30,000 boost for a research project into breast cancer.

The contribution was made by Debenhams in support of charity partner Breast Cancer Campaign which currently funds the project.

The research aims to develop new ways to use information about a person’s genes to help predict their response to treatment. Led by Dr Paul Mullan the project, if successful, will help scientists devise methods to predict which patients are unlikely to benefit from certain types of chemotherapy. Dr Mullan said: “We are extremely grateful for this generous contribution.”
