Description

Future Directions and Opportunities

Cancer research strengths within Cardiff University's College of Biomedical and Life Sciences cover the full spectrum of pre-clinical, translational and clinical research. The Cancer Theme's first annual meeting aims to draw together staff from across schools to influence future directions in research and identify opportunities across the University and beyond.

The annual meeting will feature an opportunity to hear about the recent bid for Cancer Research UK & ECMC funds. It will also cast a spotlight on collaboration, the college's infrastructure, and on the four sub-themes outlined below:

  • Tumour and Environment
    Our researchers work together to elucidate the molecular and cellular mechanisms of tumourigenesis, the importance of cancer stem cells and the tumour micro-environment in the aetiology of tumours, and the abnormalities by which tumour heterogeneity results in treatment-resistant phenotypes.
  • Drug Discovery, Development and Delivery
    Through improved understanding of the origin and behaviour of tumours, our investigators identify targets for controlling and curing tumours, design and test novel therapies directed at these targets, using pre-clinical models.
  • Personalised Cancer Genetics
    Using patient-derived biological specimens from Wales Cancer Bank and other biobanks, our researchers identify genetic biomarkers in tumours which allow us to identify at-risk individuals, diagnose tumours earlier, determine prognosis and predict the treatment most likely to benefit individual patients.
  • Clinical Trials
    Our clinical investigators improve access of patients in Wales and beyond to Phase I and randomised controlled trials of the latest developments in drug, radiotherapy and biological therapeutics.
    All university staff involved in any aspect of cancer research are encouraged to attend. The day will close with a networking session, giving you a chance to get to know colleagues from across the college.
