NCL Discover Event October 2023

Join us on campus or virtually for the next Newcastle Discover event to learn more about our research into the prevention and recovery of cancer.

Physical activity has significant health benefits for our hearts, bodies and minds, but leading a more active life can also reduce our risk of developing certain types of cancer. In addition research has shown that regular exercise can play a vital role in cancer recovery and can lower the risk of cancer returning.

We'll be joined by Dr Sam Orange who will discuss the importance of physical activity and the impact it can have in the prevention and recovery phase of a cancer diagnosis.

Please indicate on your registration form whether you will be joining us in-person or online for this hybrid event.

About Dr Sam Orange

Dr Sam Orange is a Lecturer in Clinical Exercise Physiology at Newcastle University, a member of the Newcastle University Centre for Cancer and the Deputy Director of Research in the School of Biomedical, Nutritional and Sports Sciences. His research focuses on the role of physical activity in cancer prevention and survivorship, involving both laboratory-based and clinical research.

Dr Orange specialises in developing and evaluating complex lifestyle-based interventions for people living with and beyond cancer. This has involved supporting cancer survivors to be physically active across a range of contexts, such as: prior to colorectal cancer surgery, alongside androgen deprivation therapy for people with prostate cancer, and following treatment for primary liver cancer.
