£2million project aims to revolutionize the study of cancer cells in the lab
Date:4/22/2013

r is somehow corrupting to help it grow and spread.

"It seems logical that the best long-term treatments will come from combining both therapies that target the cancer cells with something aimed at the wider tumour microenvironment which, while not cancerous cells themselves, are supporting the cancer's growth.

"Growing an in vitro model which contains all these types of cells will allow us to watch how the cells communicate and how the tumour grows, teaching us more about what is going on in this complex system and hopefully giving us a model we can test new drugs on."

The five-year research plan involves:

  • 'Deconstruction' of the human ovarian cancer tumour microenvironment

  • Constructing the artificial scaffold, optimising growth of different cell types, and assembling the model

  • Comparison of the model to fresh human tissue

  • Investigating the roles of individual cells

  • Testing new treatments that target the tumour microenvironment

    The ERC funding will also allow the team to communicate their research via Centre of the Cell, Queen Mary's award-winning science education centre, online resource, widening participation and outreach project.
