I’m not sure you could have come up with a more ambitious task than Kat Arney set herself when she decided to write her most recent book Rebel Cell: Cancer, Evolution and the Science of Life, in which she looks at the history of cancer in the human race, as well as how we tend to view, prevent and treat it today. It’s not her first massive challenge - before this, she wrote a book about understanding how our genes work. I loved hearing how she took on the task, how she built her career in science and science communication in a frequently male-dominated field, and what it has been like to have science become the focus of so much attention over the past year. I hope you find her as fascinating as I did.
