Epi-step Counts

We're taking part in the Walk in Her Name Step Challenge in aid of Ovarian Cancer Action.

Every year, 295,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer globally. Approximately half of these women will not survive beyond five years. We're taking 295,000 steps in May to raise funds for life-saving research that will help these women, and the next generation, survive.

Please help us take 295,000 steps and move research forwards. #astepforeverywoman. We are a group of researchers working in the Ovarian Cancer Action Research Centre. Our research focuses on why sometimes chemotherapy stops working for ovarian cancer patients. In particular we are looking at epigenetic mechanisms (hence the name, Epi-step Counts). Epigenetic mechanisms lead to changes in expression of genes and proteins that can alter how tumour cells respond to chemotherapy, but are different from genetic changes as they don't involve changes in DNA sequence of a patients tumour.
