Said Lawrence Foster, head of science at Sandringham: "Dr Hunt is an excellent speaker and one of the leading scientists in the world in cancer research.
"We are delighted that he can join us for Scientific Soapbox - which will be a fascinating and lively evening for anyone with a general interest in science - including students wanting to study science at university."
Dr Hunt will join staff from Sandringham, who will also be sharing their passions and enthusiasms in science with members of the school and wider community.
