Date 20th May 2015 A new front in the global effort to control cancer has opened with an international clinical trial of a new 'epigenetic' compound. The ground-breaking trial is the culmination of eight years of laboratory research led by Associate Professor Mark Dawson, Consultant Haematologist and Head of the Cancer Epigenetics Laboratory. <read more...> Read More

Date: 10th February 2015 Scientists have created a new research tool, based on the fruit fly, to help crack the histone code. This research tool can be used to better understand the function of histone proteins, which play critical roles in the regulation of gene expression in animals and plants. <read more...> Read More

Date: 6th March 2015 Researchers shed new light on the underlying processes of tumor metastasis and highlight the role of epigenetics in this process. By comparing embryogenesis with cancer metastasis they hypothesize that reversible epigenetic events regulate the development of different types of metastatic cancers. They also describe that the surrounding cells of the tumors (stromal cells) play a significant role in this process. <read more...> Read More

Date: 23rd January 2015 A recent study may help begin to explain how cancer develops though the abnormal turning on and off of genes. Researchers have discovered that the increase of methyl tags in cancer cells is due to highly efficient DNA methyl transferase 1 (DNMT1) enzymes found in these cells. <read more...> Read More

Date: 10th December 2014 Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women. One in nine will suffer breast cancer over their lifetime. Progress in prevention and early detection, and the use of chemotherapy after surgery (adjuvant chemotherapy), have achieved significantly increase survival in this disease in the last ten years, but much remains to be done. The identification of patients with high-risk breast cancer is key to knowing whether a patient will require only the removal of the tumor by surgery or whether if she will need additional chemotherapy to make sure the removal of breast cancer Read More
