Dr Rita Lawlor speaks to ecancer at the BGICC 2020 conference in Cairo, Egypt about the use of biobanking and cancer models for applied cancer research.

She states that cancer research relies heavily on using tissue - which is a limited resource.

Dr Lawlor explains the use of patient-derived xenograft models as a method to obtain more tissue and the challenges that surround this.
