‘Chromosomal Catastrophes’ in Colorectal Cancer

Understanding how cancers develop and change over time is a big challenge. For obvious reasons, scientists can’t simply sit and watch a cancer growing in a person. Members of the Evolution and Cancer Laboratory at the BCI, including lead author Dr William Cross, were part of a collaborative team that set out to identify when particular genetic changes arise during bowel cancer development.

Fellows inaugurated at new Rutherford Academy of Population Genomics and Health Data Science

Queen Mary University of London has appointed four research fellows to its new Rutherford Academy of Population Genomics and Health Data Science, funded by the Medical Research Council and UK Research and Innovation’s Rutherford Fund. Two of the fellows include BCI’s Dr Kit Curtius and Dr Dayem Ullah.

Queen Mary’s new Rutherford Academy will be aligned to its research as a partner of the London substantive site of Health Data Research UK - a major new initiative to transform health through data science. Forty two of these prestigious fellowships were awarded following a rigorous national competition, resulting in four fellowships at Queen Mary out of a total of fourteen awarded to London universities.
