How to select the best Spatial Transcriptomics platform for your work!

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 […]

Internet friends: help me answer a question!

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. […]

Guidelines for reporting research

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 […]

Peer reviewed videos: the way forwards for methods papers?

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 tour of our lab!

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 […]
