NUS High School Research Congress (21/2/2012)

Professor Soo Khee Chee's Cancer speech
The talk made me more aware about cancer, especially head and neck cancer. It is more difficult to remove these head and neck cancer cells as they try to preserve the main features of a person's face, like the eyes, nose, mouth, etc. I also found out from the talk that 1 out of every 3 deaths are caused by cancer, which shocked be because I did not know that that many people were diagnosed with cancer.
