Dr Xiao Wan awarded NC3Rs fellowship

Congratulations to Dr Xiao Wan from Professor Eric O’Neill’s group for her success in obtaining an NC3Rs Training Fellowship for ‘Developing human organotypic perfused bioreactors for physiologically reproducible therapeutic compound screening of a tumour microenvironment’.  Xiao’s research at the CRUK/MRC Oxford Institute for Radiation Oncology in the Department of Oncology focuses on developing bioreactors that more accurately recapitulate the tumour microenvironm

Peter McHugh awarded CRUK grant to investigate how cancer cells resist treatment

The 5-year programme award will support research on the DNA repair mechanisms that protect cancer cells from therapy, informing the development of future therapies.

Cancer therapies such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy aim to kill cancer cells by causing damage to their DNA. However, cancer cells often resist treatment because they have mechanisms in place that allow them to repair their DNA. Understanding how this DNA repair takes place is essential to develop more effective cancer treatments.
