The future of cancer treatment will be the focus of a talk led by two scientists as part of Norwich's City of Ale festival.

Researchers Dr Darrell Green and Julia Mundy will be at the The Murderers pub in Timberhill for the May 30 event, hosted by non-profit organisation A Pint of Science.

The researchers, who have both received grant funding from cancer charity Big C, will offer an inspiring insight into the current research into cancer taking place in Norwich.

They will lead guests on a journey inside the cell, explaining the processes which drive the development of cancer and sharing their efforts in the race to develop new, effective anti-cancer therapies. There will also be the chance to have a pint with Dr Green and Ms Mundy and take part in a challenging pub quiz.

Clive Evans, director of income generation and communications for Big C, said: 'Big C is delighted to be supporting Pint of Science in Norwich for a second year. Since 1980 Big C has invested over £10 million into research in cancer and diagnostic equipment right here in Norfolk and this is a wonderful opportunity for us to profile our commitment to world-class cancer research.'

Hope in the Hop: The Future of Cancer Treatment will start at 7pm. Tickets are £4 from www.big-c.co.uk/Events
