“I was impressed by my visit to Kidscan’s Cancer Research facility at the University of Salford. They’re an amazing charity carrying out cutting edge research into child cancer treatments with state-of-the-art teaching labs and a school programme to give children ideas about a career in medical research

Professor Helen Marshall, Vice-Chancellor at the University of Salford, said:

“We were delighted to host a visit from MP Rebecca Long-Bailey to the Kidscan laboratories right here on campus. The University has a longstanding relationship with Kidscan and we are proud to support research into the treatment of children’s cancer.”

Bob Carter from Kidscan said:

 “We are deeply honoured that Rebecca Long-Bailey MP accepted our invitation to visit the laboratory’s where our Kidscan research takes place and we deeply appreciate the considerable time that she spent with us out of her busy diary.

It was a pleasure for myself, members of our Board and other senior University representatives to share our progress and goals with Rebecca and to witness her genuine interest and her passion for supporting the people and initiatives of Salford and beyond.”
