Pathological Society of Great Britain and Ireland Small Grant
22 June 2016
Dr Harry Haynes (PhD student and Clinical Research Fellow, Brain Tumour Research Group; supervisor Dr Kathreena Kurian) has been awarded a Pathological Society Small Grant as an adjunct to his PhD funding.
The award of £9,989 will enable collaboration with colleagues at the University of Leeds. The grant is to fund work examining shRNA-mediated PPARalpha knockdown human glioma stem cell lines in orthotopic nude animal models. It is hoped that this work will lead to further elucidation of the key roles of the PPAR transcription factors in brain tumour biology.
