Understanding the evolution of Barrett’s oesophagus

New grant to help predict oesophageal cancer risk

Dr Stuart McDonald will receive a programme foundation award of ~ £1.2 million from Cancer Research UK.

It will allow the group to study how the pre-cancerous condition Barrett’s oesophagus evolves into cancer through investigating genetic and structural changes in the tissue over time.

With this award the team also hopes to find novel biomarkers that can change how we look after patients with Barrett’s oesopahgus...

Two new publications made possible by the BCI Charity

Improving transplant therapy through

Two papers have been published by Dr Jeff Davies’ group focusing on the role of immunology in bone marrow transplant, a common and effective treatment for many types of blood cancer.

Both papers are examples of taking a clinical problem into the laboratory to find out why it’s happening and how we might go about fixing it. The second won our Paper of the Month competition in April 2016...
