Developing Novel Non-invasive Measures of Tumour Physiology

Allocated Projects

Cancerous tumours significantly differ from normal tissues, and we are developing imaging techniques, mostly based on MRI, to characterise and quantify their structure. We aim to develop novel non-invasive measures of tumour physiology that are currently inaccessible, such as cell size, cell density and fluid pressure. Measurements of each of these properties could provide significant benefit in the clinic for diagnosis and the assessment of response to therapy, and this project aims to take these novel methods from an experimental setting, into the clinic.

Allocated in academic year 2014-15
