Guest speaker: Dr Wai Liu
Dr Lui is a Senior Research Fellow at St George’s, University of London. About his fascinating career, he says:
“I managed to secure a PhD at St Bartholomew’s Hospital. After I’d completed it, I went around all the consultants at St Bart’s and asked ‘What’s going on out there? What do you want me to look into?’ – I was ardent that what I researched had to have a practical, real-world benefit and wasn’t just research for the sake of research. One of the consultants came up to me and said ‘Oh, among my kidney cancer patients, the ones who smoke marijuana, their chemotherapy seems to work better.’
My immediate reaction was ‘That’s bizarre, what the heck’s going on there?’ Cannabinoids have been my research interest ever since.”
