Prostate Cancer UK March for Men

March for men

On Saturday, 17th June, the Whitaker Lab hosted the discovery zone at the Prostate

Cancer UK March for Med, at the very hot Olympic Park in Stratford. Alongside partners and colleagues from the Lovat Group they demonstrated the work that they do and gave members of the public (plus Wayne Sleep) an opportunity to try their hand at pipetting or guessing the number of tubes in the jar.

They also gave out medals to people completing the course while Hayley Luxton (post-doc) from the Whitaker Lab completed the 10K walk herself, tweeting along the route. Lina Carmona and Ben Simpson, who are both completing PhD’s were interviewed for a Facebook live stream while Hayley Whitaker gave a speech on stage and was even roped in to doing the warm up while she was there!
