CANCELLED DUE TO ILLNESS: Developing Genomics and Computational Technology to understand Tumour Development

Wednesday, 29 November 2017,
15:45 to 17:00
Location: 
W419, Waterfront Building, Ipswich

UPDATE: CANCELLED DUE TO ILLNESS. TO BE REARRANGED.

 

By the time a tumour is discovered it has often amassed into a complex mix of cellular populations and blood vessels.  While the tumour is likely to contain some elements that point to its formation and evolution, it is often difficult to look back to the original initiating event, as we find in intestinal tumours.

My research is focussed on building tools to understand this process.

I will discuss two of my approaches, the first is the use of computational simulations to help us understand the processes within crypts.  The second, is on the use of chemicals to create mutational barcodes that can be observed using next generation sequencing technologies.

Free to attend, no booking required.

Students and staff equally welcome.
