About This PhD Project

Project Description

Supervisors: Nguyen TK Thanh, Biophysics Group, Physics and Astronomy, UCL and Maya Thanou, Chemical Biology research group, Pharmaceutical Science, Kings


Hyperthermia has been recently identified as a method to treat tumors. In Thanou’ lab we develop focused ultrasound hyperthermia protocols for disease treatments. In Nguyen’s lab research showed that iron oxide nanoparticles in combination with magnetic field hyperthermia could show great potential on treating solid tumors such as glioblastoma. Magnetic Field Hyperthermia (MFH) has been identified as a possible cancer stem cell killer and as a result this strategy has rapidly moved to clinical trials. Here we propose to investigate the effects of focused ultrasound and magnetic field hyperthermia on cell function and proliferation, gene regulation and protein expression.
