Dr Sharel Peisan E, a chemistry lecturer at Teesside University, will examine the nanoscale electrochemistry of brain cancer cells.
Using a multifunctional nanoscale electrochemical imaging platform, Dr E will be able to take a closer look at brain tumour cells and their processes to gain a better understanding of their biology.
The technology uses tiny electrodes to gain an extremely close and detailed visualisation of the biology of living cells.
This research project, backed by an award of £100,000, aims to explore how brain cancer reacts to different therapies on a cellular level, which will be applied to improving or designing more effective treatments for cancer patients.
It will also be able to provide insight into other neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s in much the same way.
“Glioblastoma is one of the most devastating cancers, although its biology remains somewhat of a mystery in cancer research, with brain cancer cells being difficult to analyse using current methods of examination,” explained Dr E, who is based at Teesside University’s National Horizons Centre.
Dr E won the grant from the Academy of Medical Sciences as part of the Springboard Award, which provides funding and career support for innovative bioscientists.
Teesside University’s National Horizons Centre, based at the Darlington campus, is a £22.3million centre of excellence for innovation and training in biosciences and healthcare, with strength in cancer research.
