Manchester is home to some of the best science graduates and clinicians, all working on novel, cutting-edge cancer research. Discover more about the experiences of cancer researchers from the Cancer Research UK Manchester Centre with our Researcher Stories covering all our various study programmes.
Meet Melanie Seaton, a Non-Clinical PhD student. In her PhD project, she’s developing cellular micromotors to improve ovarian cancer management.
Meet Anu Datta, a Clinical Research Training Fellow. In his PhD project, he’s investigating if genetic and imaging biomarkers can optimise patient stratification when receiving curative radiotherapy for cervical cancer.
Meet Alis Hales, a Non-Clinical PhD student. In her PhD project, she’s developing ex vivo models for breast cancer to define how differential tissue composition and mechanics drive genetic instability in breast cancer initiation.
Meet Hadiyat Ogunlayi, an MB-PhD student. In her PhD project, she’ investigating the relationship between a stromal wound healing phenotype and breast density as a mechanism for breast cancer development.
Meet Helen Clarke, a Clinical Research Training Fellow, jointly funded by Cancer Research UK and the National Institute for Health Research. In her PhD project, she’s aiming to define the molecular impact of total dietary replacement in endometrial and breast tissues.
