As treatments improve, more children with cancer are surviving into adulthood, however, they face many significant long-term complications to their health, which are poorly understood. Dr Defne Saatci will use UK-wide, linked databases to build a more comprehensive picture of these complications faced by childhood cancer survivors. Her research is funded under the Children with Cancer UK’s Clinical PhD Studentship scheme, which is provided to develop and support future leaders in clinical cancer research.
