I am incredibly lucky to have had some excellent students working with me:
- Katarzyna Bloch recently finished her DPhil, working on characterising the metabolic changes that occur during the growth of multicellular tumour spheroids.
- Aimee Taylor is a DTC student who spent Spring 2011 investigating the effects of inhibiting the lactate transporter MCT1 on 3D hypoxia.
- Natalie Pearson (cosupervised by Dr. Rebecca Shipley) spent 10 weeks investigating the effect of treatment-induced changes to vascular geometry in tumours on hypoxia, using mathematical modelling.
- Jiyoon Yoon spent the Summer and Autumn of 2010 investigating changes in metabolism of spheroids treated with inhibitors of the Ras/PI3K/mTOR pathway.
- Dr Wang Po graduated in 2010 from the Wolfson Medical Imaging Laboratory under the primary supervision of Professor Sir Michael Brady. Po developed methods for extracting and analysing tumour vascular structure from confocal images and simulated the uptake of hypoxia imaging biomarkers in these vascular networks
