Centrosome amplification: not as clear cut as once thought

Study sheds new light on how cancer cells adapt to become aggressive

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.

Epigenetic editing: not just a one 'hit' wonder

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.

Clearing a path for better cancer treatments

Our researchers have a collaborative study published in Nature Communications on a new computational method to study biological signalling networks in healthy and cancer cells.

The method studies targets and effects of cancer drugs and ultimately could be used to routinely identify the best drug to treat patients...
