CLL Support 22nd April – How genetics may have influenced your CLL/SLL

Our speakers will be Professor James Allen, Professor of cancer genetics at Newcastle University and Dr David Allsup, Senior Lecturer in Haematology with an Honorary NHS appointment with Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. Our two speakers have been researching why people get CLL/SLL and if this is related to something in their genetic makeup. This interesting talk will be aimed at non-specialists. Further details will be announced soon.
