He was joined by Head of Centenary’s Cell Signalling Laboratory, Dr Xiangjian (XJ) Zheng.

The pair presented their most recent study, published in the scientific journal Science Advances, which identified a cancer drug as a potential treatment option for Cerebral Cavernous Malformations (CCM) – a leading cause of stroke in young people.
