DPhil studentship in Experimental Soft Matter: Fluctuations in microfluidic and nanofluidic systems

Applications are invited for a DPhil studentship in Experimental Soft Matter available from October 2024, to work under the supervision of Professor Alice Thorneywork in the Physical and Theoretical Chemistry Laboratory at the University of Oxford. Read more

Li Fraumeni Syndrome, p53 and cancer

Li Fraumeni Syndrome (LFS) is a rare genetic condition caused by germline TP53 mutations, either inherited or occurring at conception, which results in a strong predisposition to cancer (>90% and 70% lifetime risk for women and men, respectively). Read more

Investigating an interplay between autoimmunity and cancer

Immunotherapy is now entering standard clinical care for several cancer types and despite its potential to achieve durable responses, only a small percentage of patients respond to immunochemotherapy. Read more

On-therapy monitoring of oesophageal cancer and recurrence detection: the Blood-based Liquid Sequencing Study (BLISS)

Oesophageal cancer is undergoing a therapeutic revolution, with first-generation immunotherapy trial results reading out in the next 12 months, and second-generation bispecific agents beginning evaluation alongside new targeted agents for Claudin 18.2, Her2, and FGFR. Read more

Epigenetic regulation of bivalent genes in development and cancer

Our groups are interested in identifying epigenetic mechanisms driving cancer progression. Although it is well known that cancer cells harbor many DNA mutations, they also have significant alterations of their epigenome. Read more

Understanding the origin of metaplasia

Lay Summary. When doctors suspect a patient might have cancer in their gut, they use a procedure called endoscopy to take tiny samples of the unhealthy looking tissue from the patient. Read more

Decoding the epitranscriptome in cancer

Cellular RNA is decorated with diverse chemical modifications, which participate in all aspects of RNA biology. The multitude of modifications in RNA adds a new layer to gene regulation, leading to the emerging field of epitranscriptomics. Read more

Implementing state-of-the-art models to understand how blood cancer clones out-compete healthy stem cells and discovery targetable disease mechanisms

My lab focuses on myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) – chronic blood cancers in which cancer-induced remodelling of the tumour microenvironment plays a major role in fuelling malignant progression and poor outcomes for patients. Read more

Take epigenetic diagnostics “from bench to bedside”

Cancer initiation and progression are not solely driven by mutations. Environmental factors, genetics or differentiation dynamics can put the cell in a state that is more susceptible to cancerous transformation. Read more
