Celebrating International Women's Day

Seema Jaswal visits the BCI

Last Thursday was International Women’s Day- a day that celebrates the social, political, cultural and economic achievements of women from all over the world. Recently, an inspirational woman, Seema Jaswal- a television and radio presenter- visited us here at the Barts Cancer Institute (BCI) to meet some of our researchers and find out more about the cutting edge research that goes on here.

Seema’s TV career began at Sky Sports where she worked as a Runner before receiving her first presenting job on CBBC Sports Round. Seema’s successful career has since seen her host a variety of events, including the Indian Super League, India’s FIFA U17 World Cup and the Premier League. Last year, Seema was named as one of We Are The City’s Inspirational Women.

Tracking treatment-resistant cells in bowel cancer

Scientists at the BCI have applied a new method to precisely map the location of potentially treatment-resistant mutant cells inside human tumours.

The new method, named BaseScope, allows researchers to see how cells that carry a particular genetic mutation are organised within a tumour. These ‘maps’ of mutant cancer cells (see picture) reveal new information about how tumours grow.
