Why did you choose to run for the ICR?
Until just a couple of weeks ago I worked at The Institute of Cancer Research, London, in our Enterprise Unit, which is responsible for all of our agreements and partnerships with industry. It’s a busy team and my job entailed running around, but not as much running as I’m about to do!
I’ve always thought about doing the London Marathon but never quite had the courage to go for it. Working at the ICR I got to see first-hand the excellent research that takes place every day. I also lost my father to cancer when I was 23, so the cause is something that is very close to my heart.
