"The most prestigious event in the haematology calendar"
Research teams from our Centre for Haemato-Oncology have once again joined the world’s most influential figures in haematology to present their cutting-edge findings at the 59th ASH Annual Meeting & Exposition.
Centrosome amplification: not as clear cut as once thought
A new study from Dr Susana Godinho’s lab has revealed surprising insights into how cancer cells adapt to ‘centrosome amplification’ – a mechanism that they have previously demonstrated to be essential in allowing certain tumours to become aggressive and metastatic.
Professor Lemoine is only the fifth British scientist to have received this honour
BCI director Professor Nick Lemoine has been awarded the China Friendship Award - the country’s highest award for ‘foreign experts who have made outstanding contributions to the country's economic and social progress’.
New research published today in Nature Communications
For the very first time, researchers at BCI have shown that modifying the ‘epigenome’ of a healthy breast cell is not only possible, but precise enough to initiate a chain reaction of events that make the cell abnormal.
New MALDI-TOF research suggests a link between prostate cancer and low "oxygen" loving bacteria
Research by Professor Tim Oliver brings to light a possible new link between microbes and prostate cancer, an association that may indicate a radical change in thinking about the causes of the disease.
With the support of a recent £188,000 Pioneer Award from Cancer Research UK, Dr Katiuscia Bianchi and her team are developing an innovative method to allow researchers to screen and identify new drugs targeting a particular metabolic pathway that cancer cells use to thrive.
