Our 2012 Cruden Foundation supported lecture in association with the Royal Society of Edinburgh will feature Professor David Cameron FRSE, Clinical Director and Director of Cancer Services for NHS Lothian, Professor of Oncology at the University of Edinburgh, and Associate Director for the National Institute for Health Research Cancer Research Network.
