Understanding complement system dysregulation in the tumour microenvironment

Inducing a stress response analogous to anti-viral immunity is important for maximising immune responses against the tumour. However, tumours evolve evasion strategies that can limit these responses. Read more

EASTBIO: Dissecting the role of the immune system in tumour initiation using experimental & computational analysis

  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
Mechanisms that modulate leukocyte migration in vivo are fundamental to the function of the immune system. Leukocytes such as neutrophils and macrophages are first-line responders to many physiological and pathological changes in the tissue microenvironment, such as inflammation after injury or in cancer.

(Non Clinical) Deconvolving how myeloid cell heterogeneity is imprinted and governs brain tumour progression and recurrence

Myeloid cells (monocytes, macrophages and microglial cells) are major components in the tumour microenvironment (TME) of primary brain tumours (low-grade gliomas and high-grade glioblastomas). Myeloid cells are believed to play key roles in tumour progression and resistance to radio-chemotherapy.

Exploiting ERK5-signalling to modify T-cell behaviour during tumour progression and radiotherapy response: a new immunotherapy approach?

T-cells can attack tumours (so called anti-tumour responses), causing a reduction in tumour size or even elimination of the tumour. However, in many tumours the tumour “switches off” anti-tumour T-cell responses. Several immunotherapy drugs have been developed that switch anti-tumour T-cell responses back on in patients.

Cancer: Developing 3D multicellular tumour spheroid models to assess EPA-oncolytic viruses combination therapies in vitro

Cancer immunotherapy holds significant promise for the treatment of a range of cancers. Immunotherapy efficacy, such therapeutic antibodies and oncolytic viruses (OVs), have been clinically assessed against a range of solid tumours. Read more

PhD in Therapeutic Ultrasound

Project Description. Pancreatic cancer is one the most common causes of cancer death in the world. One characteristic of pancreatic cancer in humans is the presence of a dense fibrous stroma which may comprise up to 80% of the tumour mass. Read more

Identifying the determinants of leukocyte transit between the stroma and tumours

Talented and motivated students passionate about doing research are invited to apply for this PhD position. The successful applicant will join the Crick PhD Programme in September 2022 and will register for their PhD at one of the Crick partner universities (Imperial College London, King’s College London or UCL).

Acoustic Tweezers for Cancer Early Diagnosis

THIS IS A SELF FUNDED PROJECT. Medical imaging modalities are commonly used in hospital for cancer screening, but they are unable to diagnose early tumour development due to the limitation of detection size. Read more

Self-funded BMS project: Rewiring RNA networks to train innate anti-tumour immunity

Cancer immunotherapy has transformed outcomes in clinical oncology. Yet, challenges remain. not all types of cancer respond to current immunotherapies, and for those types that significant benefits are observed, there are still patients who show poor responses. Read more
