My story

[p][img][/img]My research career changed forever in 2011 when I discovered the cancer-causing gene called LMTK3. I have joked that I should get a tattoo of it, as working on the research to develop an anti-LMTK3 drug has taken over my life since then! [/p][p]Instead I have decided to take on an LMTK3-themed crazy fundraising challenge! I am doing this for Action Against Cancer, the charity that has supported my LMTK3 research since the beginning. [/p][p]This gene I have been getting to know VERY well for almost 10 years, has 1,489 amino acids. So, over the next three months (30/11/20 - 28/02/21) I am going to:[/p][p]* run 148.9km (around 3.5 marathons!)[/p][p]* do 1,489 minutes of HIIT routines[/p][p]* do 1,489 minutes of sit-ups[/p][p]* and every month, do 1,489 push-ups![/p][p]I do not normally do this much exercise (especially considering the condition of my Achilles tendons!), and this is going to be very challenging. It will take up much of my time that I am not in the lab. I will be very grateful if you would support me in this crazy effort to fundraise for Action Against Cancer. There will be regular training updates along the way.[/p][p]For the person who donates the most, I will treat them to dinner - with me if they like - with maybe a 1,489 calorie target![/p][p]You can read more about my LMTK3 research here: [url=https://aacancer.org/ourwork/drug-development.html.php]https://aacancer.org/ourwork/drug-development.html.php[/url][/p][p][br][/p][p]For regular training updates, please check here:[/p][p][url=https://protect-eu.mimecast.com/s/4HmFC69zgT1zroNcp6uR_?domain=aacancer.org]https://aacancer.org/newsandevents/professorgeorgiosgiamasfundraiser.html.php[/url][/p][p]Thank you very much,[/p][p]Georgios[/p][p][br][/p]
