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-Assembling Peptides for Biomedical Applications

Designed short peptides can self-assemble into different nanostructures (such as nanoparticles, nanofibrils and hydrogels) through weak interactions and have a variety of applications. Read more

Functional optical coherence tomography for characterisation and diagnosis of skin cancer

Non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) the commonest cancer in humans. Although the majority of NMSCs are of low-grade malignancy, misdiagnosis, suboptimal therapy, or under-estimation of the biological potential of the primary tumour can cause serious morbidity. Read more

Origins of Genotoxic metabolism and the DNA damage response in stem and cancer cells

Our work has shown that metabolism both generalized and intrinsic to blood stem cells unleashes reactive metabolites such as the aldehydes – formaldehyde and acetaldehyde. Read more

Biological significance, predictive value and targeting of cell surface antigens in colorectal cancer.

Despite major advances in its early detection, preventive measures and therapeutic options, colorectal cancer is the fourth most commonly diagnosed cancer and the third leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide. Read more

Wireless bioelectrochemistry towards sensing and treating cancer

We are currently seeking applications for a 3 year Ph.D. to join a collaborative international multidisciplinary team to work on a research project aligned with our funded EPSRC’s Healthcare Technology Challenge Award aimed at developing bioelectronic technology to transform healthcare. This is a cross-school Ph.D. Read more

Do Cas9 induced increases in chromosome instability in cancer cells have therapeutic potential?

Many common cancer treatments such as radiotherapy and some chemotherapy agents function by inducing DNA damage and chromosomal instability in cancer cells at high enough levels to cause cell death. Read more
