Cancer: Epigenetic therapy using microbubble-mediated drug delivery for colorectal cancer

The project is an interdisciplinary, pre-clinical study that aims to investigate the response of human tumour cells to treatment with epigenetic inhibitors (including DNA methyltransferase inhibitors, HDAC inhibitors and/or vitamin C), as a potential combination therapy for colorectal cancer (CRC).

Outcomes for Pressure Ulcer Trials (OUTPUTs): development of outcome measurement instruments for core domain outcomes

Pressure Ulcers (PUs) are “localized injury to the skin and/or underlying tissue usually over a bony prominence, as a result of pressure, or pressure in combination with shear” and are categorized numerically according to the tissue layers involved [1]. Read more

Using our expertise to develop future scientists - Fully Funded BHF 4 Year PhD Programme

Soon, 1 in 10 UK adults will have diabetes. In spite of modern treatments, most of these people will suffer major cardiovascular problems, including heart attack and stroke, impairing their quality of life and survival. Read more

Cancer: Understanding the immunosuppressive role of fibroblast and macrophages in Breast cancer

Oncolytic viruses (OVs) preferentially infect and kill cancer cells, and their clinical efficacy has been demonstrated against a number of different cancers. The most clinically advanced OV is a genetically engineered herpes simplex virus (T-VEC) which expresses GMCSF to aid the development of anti-tumour immune responses; T-VEC is approved for the treatment of metastatic melanoma.

Cancer: Characterization of EGFR signaling activated by the endothelium in the process of breast cancer metastasis to the brain

The Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) is important in normal physiology regulating epithelial development and homeostasis. In cancer, deregulation resulting from mutation, amplification or transcriptional upregulation promotes tumorigenesis. Read more
