- Children With Cancer UK grant 30 November 2017 The aim of the project is to offer a better treatment to children with brain tumours in the future.
- Primary care is key to optimising value in healthcare 14 November 2017 Balancing improvements in health against the cost of such improvements in primary care is vital to achieve a cost-effective and efficient healthcare system, finds a new report by University of Bristol researchers and published in the BMJ.
- NCRI Conference 2017 10 November 2017 This year’s National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) Conference took place 5 - 8 November 2017 in Liverpool.

- A new method for the 3D printing of living artificial tissues 1 November 2017 A team from the University of Bristol’s School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, together with scientists at the University of Oxford, has developed a new method to 3D-print stem cells to form complex living 3D structures.
- NIHR Fellowship 18 October 2017 Sabina Sanghera was recently awarded a NIHR Post-Doctoral Fellowship.
- Centre for Cancer Epidemiology workshop 17 October 2017 From the 4th to the 14th of October 2017 ten members of the IEU and ICEP embarked on a journey to teach on the Mendelian randomization and Epigenetic Cancer Epidemiology workshop at the Centre for Cancer Epidemiology at the TATA Memorial Centre Advanced Centre for Treatment, Research and Education in Cancer (ACTREC) in Navi Mumbai, India.
- New discovery could reverse tissue damage 12 September 2017 A new discovery by University of Bristol scientists helps to explain how cells which surround blood vessels, called pericytes, stimulate new blood vessels to grow with the hormone ‘leptin’ playing a key role. Leptin is produced by fat cells which helps to regulate energy balance in the body by inhibiting the appetite. This study, described in Scientific Reports, may have important implications for the treatment of heart attacks and also for cancer, the two main killers in the UK.
- Big Bang Bristol 31 August 2017 Big Bang Bristol is a two day Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) fair aimed at school-aged children which this year took place 6 - 7 July 2017 at the Trinity Centre in Bristol.
