Nottingham scientist wins major cancer research award
Date:8/2/2011

A University of Nottingham scientist who uses fruit flies to study the genetics of cancer has won a prestigious award from Cancer Research UK.

Dr Marios Georgiou, lecturer in cell biology in the University's School of Biomedical Sciences, has been awarded a five year Career Establishment Award of 600,000. The award is given every year to new investigators who are set to become the eminent cancer scientists of the future.

Cancer Research UK has awarded a total of 12 million to ten exceptional researchers across the country to develop their careers and to support future exciting discoveries which will allow more people to beat cancer than ever before.

Dr Georgiou will use the award to identify the genes that are important for a benign tumour to transform into a malignant one. This is crucial to understanding how tumours spread to other parts of the body.

Dr Georgiou said: "I am thrilled and honoured that such a prestigious organisation as CRUK believes my research to be important and relevant. The substantial award will allow me to embark upon an ambitious project to identify genes involved in tumour progression. The five years funding, with generous support for research staff and running costs, is ideal for me as a newly appointed lecturer at The University of Nottingham as it will allow me to establish the laboratory and to focus my research in the hope of producing work of high quality and of high significance to human health.

"Our research uses the fruit fly (a small fly, which you may often find flying above your fruit bowl) to study cancer because it has many advantages over other cancer models. For instance we can carry out complex experiments relatively quickly and cheaply and by using the fly, we avoid using vertebrate animals for this research."

The aim of the CRUK-funded project is to improve understanding of the early steps of tumour development, i.e. how tumours develop from a benign state to m
