An ambitious project that set out nearly 5 years ago to replicate experiments from 50 high-impact cancer biology papers, but gradually shrank that number, now expects to complete just 18 studies - costs rose and delays ensued...

Any chance of moving these two dangerous metal posts from Hillsborough Park? I’ve tripped over both of them, which was a bit clumsy of me given the large arrows pointing them out. See attached.
