This is the first in our new series of ‘Cancer Roundup’ videos, where we’ll take you through some advances in cancer research that have been discussed in the last month or so, in both the mainstream media and in the academic community, as well as one type of new cancer technology that has caught our […]

Announcing a summer webinar for your viewing pleasure! And not just viewing – we’ll be hoping to engage you in round table discussions and brainstorming sessions about the future of this exciting field! We’re still confirming the last couple of talk titles before announcing the full programme, but as readers of my blog you can […]
In recent years, spatial transcriptomics has gone from being a long-shot futuristic technology that many were sceptical of, to one of the trendiest and mostly widely attempted omics methods on the market. Having once been the handywork of a few isolated academic labs developing methodologies in-house, it is now commercially available from a wide range […]
Our latest YouTube video for Cancer Research Demystified came out yesterday, and it attempts to answer this very tough question: what is the single greatest challenge in cancer research? Here’s a little behind the scenes look at how the video came to be! I’m still not back to working in the real world post COVID19, […]
I’m currently working on a new video for Cancer Research Demystified, where I’m going to attempt to answer this lofty question. What is the biggest challenge in cancer research today? For the video, I’ll summarise a few different perspectives on this: the patients, the advocates, the funders, the institutions, the public, and the researchers ourselves. […]
I recently came across a review which asked if it’s time for peer reviewers to request ‘organ on a chip’ models instead of animal validation studies, and it got me thinking – are we there yet? As cancer researchers, if we submit an article for publication that contains only data from cell lines, we’re often […]
A quick blog this week as I’m in the midst of lots of teaching & grant writing! On this week’s teaching agenda I’ve got research reporting, research presentation skills, in vitro, in vivo, and in silico research, acute & chronic inflammation, image analysis and drug efficacy. I thought I’d share with you some of the […]
Last year I published my first ‘paper’ with JoVE – the Journal of Visualized Experiments. JoVE are a video journal, that I had heard about from a collaborator – who suggested that our MRI-targeted prostate slicing method ‘PEOPLE’ might be a good fit. It sounded like a great idea! I’m happy to report that there’s […]
A quick blog this week! I wanted to take a moment to introduce one of our favourite Cancer Research Demystified videos. Here, we give a tour of our lab so that cancer patients, carers, students and anyone with an interest can see what cancer research really looks like! During our first couple of years meeting […]
