Chromosomal instability in ovarian cancer

26th November 2020

We spoke with Dr Sarah McClelland and senior postdoctoral researcher in her group, Dr Nadeem Shaikh, about the team’s most recent paper, published in Cancer Research, which set out to explore the mechanisms of chromosomal instability in high-grade serous ovarian carcinoma – the most common type of ovarian cancer. The study sheds light on how these mechanisms may be able to be targeted to overcome treatment resistance in this cancer type.

Protein powerhouses – Q&A with Dr Mardakheh

9th November 2020

We spoke with Dr Faraz Mardakheh from Barts Cancer Institute’s Centre for Cancer Cell and Molecular Biology about his most recent research paper, published today in Developmental Cell. The study sheds lights on how invasive cancer cells increase their protein-making capacity in order to boost their growth and invasive capabilities, and identifies a key player involved in this process, which may represent a target for therapeutic interventions.
