Jannat Khan

BSc


MSc Radiation Biology Student

Exploring cooperativity when combining radionuclide therapy and radiosensitising chemotherapies

Research Summary

Jannat will be exploring the use of radionuclide therapy in combination with radiosensitising chemotherapies for the treatment of metastatic prostate cancer. Her project aims to identify the reasoning for the lack of co-operativity of high potency drugs by performing assays to identify if the cause is due to differences between apoptosis and senescence. This research will determine if these differences are desirable in radionuclide combination therapy.
