Stopping biological time ; cryobiology, cryonics, and translation of low temperature science

Many people will have been aware over the past few months that the topics of freezing human organs or bodies have been profiled in the media. This has been in part stimulated by a court case surrounding an individual family choice about permitting body cryopreservation, and more recently research indicating that by using nanotechnology, it may be possible to overcome one of the  ‘Achilles’ heels’ of organ cryopreservation, which has been the rewarming technology.  More...

NIHR-funded Clinical Translation Grant

Congratulations to Dr Kate Ricketts, Prof Sandy Macrobert, Prof Marilena Loizidou and Dr Elnaz Yaghini, together with Prof Gary Royle (Medical Physics and Bioengineering) and Prof Ricky Sharma (Cancer Institute), for being awarded an NIHR-funded translational pathway incubation grant, under the Colorectal Therapies Healthcare Technology Cooperative. This will fund a network of academics, clinicians, industry, health economists, policy makers, patient groups and legal advisors to support accelerated, optimised and streamlined clinical translation of Division of Surgery research in nanoparticle-enhanced radiotherapy. Through this award the UCL team will benefit from access to regulatory and legal advice, and together with the Colorectal HTC, will produce a road map to commercialisation and clinical translation. The funding will enable key stakeholders to be brought together for acceleration of promising basic science into translation and adoption into clinical practice. More...

MRC-funded Knowledge and Exchange secondment

Congratulations to Kate Ricketts and Reem Ahmad who have been awarded an MRC-funded Proximity to Discovery Award to enable Reem to be seconded for six months part-time at the National Physical Laboratory, the UK standards laboratory in Teddington. Reem will also spend time at the Joint Research Centre in Italy (European Commission) to work on the characterisation of nanomaterials for the development of regulatory guidelines. The industrial secondment will enable Reem to gain first-hand experience in working within a government run facility and knowledge of policy and standardisation involved in clinical translation. The secondment will enhance the ongoing collaborative research between Dr Ricketts’ team and NPL on the therapeutic enhancement of metallic nanoparticles in radiotherapy. This will form part of NPL’s centre for Metrology for Medical Physics (MEMPHYS) focussed on optimum and rapid clinical adoption of new diagnostic and therapeutic techniques close to implementation.
