The inaugural Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards recognised the best talent in the county at a presentation evening on Wednesday, 8 March at the Marlborough Enterprise Centre in Woodstock during the 10th National Apprenticeship Week.
Using funding from CRUK and Psioxus Therapeutics, a team of researchers from the University of Oxford led by Professor Len Seymour, have recently published a paper in Molecular Therapy Oncolytics.
Congratulations to Professor Ruth Muschel who was awarded the 20015-2016 Yuhas Award for Excellence in Research in Radiation Biology from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.
Ruth gave her award lecture on 2 March in Philadelphia, which was entitled "Radiation Therapy and the Tumour Microenvironment".
Workshop Apprentice Kyle Hallett, has been awarded the 2016 Advanced Apprentice Award at the University of Oxford’s 2016 Apprenticeship Awards which was held at the Sheldonian on Friday, 9 December. The award has recognised Kyle’s huge amount of enthusiasm for learning all aspects of work. He has embraced new technologies in advanced design and manufacture and is already providing his worth by increasing the workshop productivity in the Department. Kyle is in his second year of his appre
The Department of Oncology is delighted to have received an Athena SWAN silver award in recognition of its commitment to tackling gender inequality in higher education. The awards were announced by the Equality Challenge Unit today.
Using funding from the CRUK–EPSRC Multidisciplinary Project Award, a team of researchers from the University of Oxford, Clinical Oncologist Professor Anne Kiltie, Biomedical Engineer Professor Eleanor Stride and Biophyscist Professor Boris Vonjovic, are sharing their respective expertise to unlock exciting new approaches in chemotherapy and radiotherapy using ultrasound.
Two research projects at the University of Oxford have today been awarded research grants by Pancreatic Cancer UK to continue vital research into the early detection of pancreatic cancer.
Members from Kristijan Ramadan’s group in the CRUK/MRC Oxford Institute of Radiation Oncology have discovered a mechanism of how cells remove covalently attached proteins from DNA, known as DNA-protein crosslinks (DPCs). DPCs are toxic lesions and if they are not removed lead to genomic instability and cancer. However, the mechanism regarding how cells remove and repair DPCs was unknown until now.
Tagging gold nanoparticles with a small dose of radiation has helped researchers trace the precious metal as it delivers a drug right into the heart of cancer cells, according to new laboratory research being presented at the 2016 National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) Cancer conference.
