I’m a physicist so I’m not involved in the research. I believe that finding ways to easy the pain of others should be one goal that everyone should have in life. Donating money to charities is one way to contribute.
I often donate to cancer research charities, I care deeply about cancer – I jolly well should do, it is my job to try and prevent cancer! Where I work is attached to Oxford University and they do a lot of cancer research work, and often pop in and out of my lab.
